Calling All Changemakers for Impact Investment Program

Sponsored Content


Kalamazoo Community Foundation (KZCF) is inviting area organizations and businesses seeking to expand high impact community efforts in Kalamazoo to apply for Impact Investment Loans. These loans are a special financing option for projects that support community growth in three goal areas: increasing housing equity, creating an inclusive economy, and developing nonprofit infrastructure. Impact Investment Loans from KZCF offer recipients an alternative to traditional lending sources, with low-interest rates based on the Consumer Price Index plus one percent. This often places the loans below market rates, with the added advantages of flexible loan terms and a streamlined 2-page application process. The Community Foundation’s Impact Investment Committee will review applications four times a year using a Racial Equity Impact Assessment Guide to ensure alignment with investment priorities. Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis. Learn more and apply at the Kalamazoo Community Foundation’s website.
