About Us

We are a nonprofit organization that transforms and revitalizes communities throughout South Carolina by financing projects that provide housing, provide access to food and essential services, attract businesses, employ community members and stimulate economic activity.

By providing loans and technical assistance to organizations that seek to strengthen the social and economic fabric of local communities, we empower communities to effect their own transformation.

We are advocates for capital access.
