Remembering Our Dear Friend and Partner, Adina Abramowitz

December 15th, 2023

We would like to pay homage to our dear friend and partner, Adina Abramowitz.

Her unyielding commitment to economic and racial justice made her a force in the community development finance industry, as she challenged organizations to do their best to create real change in their communities.

And, to us at Community First Fund, Adina was an essential piece of our family.  For decades, she helped to shepherd our work toward our mission, and challenged us to make critical and consequential decisions as we strove to make our vision a reality. She was always available to offer guidance, with candor, and often, with a touch of humor.

Adina, the world is a better place because you walked in it. With profound gratitude and heartfelt sorrow we say goodbye.

Our hearts and prayers are with Adina’s wife, Naomi, family and friends. May her memory be a blessing. Indeed, for all of us at Community First, it always will be.
