Through community development, investors designate part of their
portfolio for credit unions, non-profit banks, or funds that make loans to
start-up enterprises in low-income communities. Such programs provide capital
and technical expertise to persons and groups that are often under-served by
traditional lenders. Affordable housing and successful minority-owned businesses
are other goals of community investing.
Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) is inviting congregations to participate in community investing through its
program! Download the Community Investing Match Form (Word) (PDF).
The UUA has invested in numerous community development projects through the
years. Also, the OpenDoor Housing Fund (formerly the Unitarian Universalist Affordable Housing Corporation) has led the way in
providing affordable housing in the DC area, as well as across the nation.
