Transform Finance builds a just world by making capital a force for transformative change.
We do this by bridging the worlds of finance and social justice, leveraging their collective power
to realize the true promise of impact investing, philanthropy, and social enterprise. 

 
 

Join us in building a movement for
community-centered finance! 

 
 

WHAT WE DO

Transform Finance supports a broad range of efforts to use finance as a positive tool for equity and shared prosperity. We work with investors, asset owners, entrepreneurs, and social change agents to move capital in transformative ways and prove the potential of bold new approaches to the role of finance in our world. 

 

INVESTORS

We convene the Transform Finance Investor Network, a community of funds, foundations, and family offices seeking to invest with a community-centered, social justice approach. Over $550 million has been committed to investment using the Transformative Finance principles and approach.

COMMUNITIES

We assist activists and community leaders to leverage finance as a force for transformative social change. We support organizations to generate new earned income strategies, leverage finance as a tool for social justice, and enable financial accountability in our communities.

ENTREPRENEURS

We enable social entrepreneurs to find the right financing structure for their enterprise and deepen their impact. Our educational courses on Transformative Enterprise teach how to operate from a community-centered approach that balances the needs of all stakeholders.

 

TRANSFORMATIVE FINANCE PRINCIPLES

1) Projects are primarily designed, governed, and where feasible owned by communities.

2) Investments add more value than they extract.

3) The financial relationship fairly balances risks and returns among all stakeholders.
