Who We Are


The system may not recognize your value, but we do.

Our goal is to promote economic inclusion for all members of southern Arizona, regardless of socioeconomic status.  We will achieve it by leveraging our financial and knowledge capital into the areas of our local economy where expansion of access is desperately needed.  Specifically, our work ensures that more people in our community can buy homes, can access the education they want for their children, and can get the funding they need to start, sustain, and grow their small businesses.

The guiding principle we live by is: Nobody who has the desire and diligence to participate in our economy should ever be on the outside looking in.

Committed to expanding economic opportunities, we pursue three distinct program areas that are foundational to individual and community well-being:


Helping aspiring homeowners through tax credits and down payment assistance


Providing much needed financing to small businesses and nonprofits, as well as, introducing innovative systems to promote private investment in early stage businesses.


Assisting schools with access to capital, bond compliance, and family engagement
