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 investment or donation will help transform the communities we serve by helping entrepreneurs who are seeking to start or expand a small business, increasing jobs, revitalizing neighborhoods and creating new housing opportunities for low and moderate income families.
