Investing in workers and keeping wealth in communities
Why We Invest
Why shared ownership models like ESOPs or co-ops? Happier and more committed workers, higher productivity, better compensation, wealth that stays in communities—all leading to income mobility and more resilient local economies.
Mission Driven Finance is working with industry leaders around the country to develop capital solutions that increase shared ownership opportunities.
The Employee Ownership Catalyst Fund supports businesses throughout the U.S. that want to transition to employee ownership and need capital to do so. Operated in partnership with Project Equity, the fund promotes resilient, quality jobs, increases worker voice, and preserves and strengthens small business assets in communities.
The Care Access Real Estate (CARE) Investment Trust works to expand the availability of quality child care. The difference between this from other specialty real estate investment models is the focus on building inclusive and equitable community economic systems.
Our launch focuses on early childhood education facilities, with the long-term goal to create a public community real estate investment trust.
