This year's OFN Conference is the time to celebrate our work as #CDFIChangeAgents. 

Join the conversation!

We made it easy to participate in this year’s conference themed conversation with templates you can use to plug in your stories or data and easily share across your social media accounts.

Here's an example:


Sample Tweets You can Use:

What stories should you share?

All of them! Every story is welcome. Bring the dedication and hard work of your CDFI and your staff to life. No story or circumstance is too big or too small. We want to hear about a borrower you financed, your colleague who stays late every day, or the big wins that you list as your greatest accomplishments!

What if I don’t have a photo?

That’s ok! You can always link back to your website, use your logo, feature an infographic or branded image, or even take and share a selfie!

Why should we participate?

Social media campaigns are not just for fun, they help tell the CDFI story. Our social media campaigns have created between 1MM and 11MM impressions! Campaigns help us demonstrate to those who are watching (policymakers, funders, media) that the CDFI industry is creating tangible impact across the country in rural, urban, and Native communities.
