No true organization can succeed on its own.
No true community nonprofit organization – like Community Investment Corporation – can succeed on its own. Our work cannot be done in a vacuum if we hope to make sustained change and impact. And the issues we face – social, economic, and ones of equity of opportunity – are multi-faceted and incredibly complex. There is no silver bullet to the challenges, and no one organization will ever be able to address these issues meaningfully on its own.
This understanding is at the root of Community Investment Corporation’s approach. We actively seek to share our expertise, capacity, and resources with other nonprofit organizations, for-profit companies and entrepreneurs, and government agencies. The goals of our partnerships are to increase the impact of our work, to magnify and multiply it – exponentially if possible – and to help other organizations increase their impact in the same way as well.
We’d love for you to join us!
reimagine & think big!
Community Investment Corporation values partnership, collaboration and innovation and is always willing to partner and forge new relationships to create opportunity in our community. We know that no single organization can solve the complex issue of building more equitable practices around capital access, economic parity, homeownership opportunities and enhance education. That is why we are always looking for opportunities to reimagine, think big and act bold in partnerships that bring together expertise, ideas, tools and resources to make our community a better place.
Our partnerships are formed through shared objectives and opportunities in order to leverage assets, bring new financial resources, employee talent, and greater impact to Southern Arizona. We are proud of the incredible partnerships we’ve built with the organizations below, among many others.
