Opportunity Finance Network (OFN) is the national association of community development financial institutions (CDFIs). We help money flow to people and places where traditional finance doesn’t reach by maximizing the effectiveness of OFN member and non-member CDFIs through direct financing, learning opportunities, industry events, and advocacy.
We represent and serve a diverse membership of more than 270 CDFIs of various asset sizes and lending types working on the ground in all 50 states. Our network of community development loan funds, banks, venture capital funds, and credit unions help people realize their full potential and contribute to thriving communities.
Through 2018, OFN's network originated $74 billion in communities across all 50 states, including rural, urban, and Native areas. We are proud of our impact so far, and seek to do even more in terms of jobs, small businesses, affordable housing, and community services.
Currently, OFN manages more than $750 million in capital and offers a range of products and services to help CDFIs lend and invest in markets underserved by mainstream banks.
Lending Where It Counts
Across OFN's membership and the CDFI industry, CDFI investment makes a difference for the people and places CDFIs serve. CDFIs reach deep and lend where it counts.
