The CIF Toolkit has arrived!
We are pleased to announce that the Community Investment Fund (CIF) Toolkit is officially available to the public at no charge on our website at

The CIF Toolkit is a collection of resources to help you develop your own community investment fund. The Toolkit includes explainer videos and downloadable worksheets to get you started, including a Team Builder Matrix, Investment Thesis Worksheet, Fund Calculator, Operating Structure Checklist, and Financial Modeling Guidelines. The Toolkit acts as a complement to “Chapter 2: Steps to Create a Community Investment Fund” of the CIF Handbook

Take a look at the CIF Toolkit and let us know what you think! We’d love to hear from you, particularly if you are thinking about starting a fund in your community.

Reminder: Webinar today

We have an upcoming webinar showcasing the CIF Toolkit today at 12pm PT/3pm ET. Janice Shade, author of the Toolkit, will introduce the resources and explore how communities are using these tools to create their own CIFs. We are honored to be joined by Yoni Blumberg, VP of Community Wealth Building at WEPOWER. Among other powerful organizing work, WEPOWER manages a fund to accelerate community-owned wealth generation by investing in high growth Black and Latinx businesses in North St. Louis.
