CDFIs Receive Funding to Support Charter Schools
June 24, 2010 | Grantee News | Community & Economic Development, Impact Investments

As part of a new $325-million JP Morgan Chase initiative, two Foundation-backed Community Development Financial Institutions (CDFIs) — Philadelphia-based The Reinvestment Fund and San Francisco-based Low Income Investment Fund — will receive grants and access to $175 million in new low-cost debt to finance top-performing charter schools. This funding, and similar, recent commitments from Goldman Sachs and Citigroup, will deliver more than $800 million in new private sector capital to leading CDFIs across the nation.  Since 1986, the Foundation has been a leading supporter of CDFIs, providing $250 million in grant and program-related investment support.
