We empower your community organization and mission-driven development projects with loans tailored to you.
What makes us different from traditional lenders?
Community Development Financial Institutions (CDFIs) like Forward Community Investments are dedicated to providing fair flexible financing to communities that mainstream finance does not traditionally reach.
We provide financing to nonprofits and diverse developers for community based, high impact projects that address the root causes of racial disparities and socioeconomic inequities and help transform communities across Wisconsin.
We do our best to build the box to fit our borrowers, not the other way around.
We are a financial partner that works hard to find the right loan opportunity for you, that’s why are able to pass along benefits to our borrowers.
