OFN’s conference for community lenders and partners takes place this October 15-18 in Washington, D.C. Our theme this year is Capital Meets Purpose.
CDFIs invest capital with purpose.
Over the past several years, CDFIs have proven we are a critical part of the financial ecosystem and strategic partners to the public and private sectors for lending in communities where mainstream finance doesn’t reach. It’s now time to take stock of where we are today and how our core purpose of social, economic, and racial justice needs to evolve for tomorrow.
This October, 2,000 CDFI practitioners, funders, and investors, as well as policymakers and other industry stakeholders, will gather to explore where we can do more and work together to grow and scale; why climate justice must be part of our core purpose going forward; what it will take to build a future-ready CDFI workforce; and so much more.
Don’t miss this must-attend event if you believe capital has a purpose far beyond profit!
