Truist Foundation today announced a $2.25 million commitment to Community First Fund, a nonprofit Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI), dedicated to aligning capital with social justice for lowincome communities and low-wealth individuals. The grant will help launch Community First Fund’s Economic Justice Fund (EJFund) that will support lending activities to Black and Latine entrepreneurs across Community First Fund’s service footprint in Eastern and Central Pennsylvania, including in the greater Philadelphia region.
Community First Fund’s approach to creating vibrant communities includes increasing development of affordable housing units, enhancing access to food and healthcare resources, creating educational opportunities for all, and providing the funding for job-creating businesses to start up and grow.
Invest In Your Community
Community First Fund relies on the support of individuals and institutions that are committed to investing in people’s lives and communities. Your support will help build healthy communities by aiding entrepreneurs who are seeking to start or expand a small business, increasing jobs, offering food and healthcare resources, revitalizing neighborhoods and creating new housing opportunities for low and moderate income families.
Stand Together for Social Justice
Recent tragic events taking place in our communities are a result of deep-rooted systemic racism and years of pent-up fear, frustration, and hopelessness that is a reality of life for People of Color. Violence against the Black community, the dramatic rise in anti-Asian hate crimes, and the immigration crisis on our southern borders all prove that racism and xenophobia still thrives in our world.
