Effective July 1, 2020, Community First Fund and FINANTA, a Philadelphia-based CDFI, joined forces as one, larger entity that now allows us to have a greater impact and drive change in the communities we serve. Over the next several months, our newly expanded team will be working together to develop best practices and implement technological efficiencies to advance our integrated organization.
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.
