REDF’s diverse community of supporters make everything possible.

Thanks to the vision and generosity of individuals, foundations, businesses, and the federal government, REDF has helped transform tens of thousands of lives, one job at a time. In 2016, REDF launched its 2020 Campaign to raise $75 million over 5 years, which will ensure that 50,000 men and women with the most challenging histories have the opportunity to work and to experience greater economic security and mobility.

REDF works with investment partners to close the gap between social enterprises and their capital needs. The goal is to develop a robust capital market for the unique needs and opportunities of the social enterprise industry. These partners include individuals, foundations, companies, and public agencies.

As part of our commitment to improve financial lives, we’re advancing economic mobility through partnerships that will help build thriving communities. We’ve had a longstanding partnership with REDF in order to connect individuals with barriers to employment to jobs and we’re thrilled to be part of REDF’s national expansion to assist those re-entering the workforce, including the homeless and formerly incarcerated. We’ve seen a multiplier effect from our investments in social enterprises and believe this work helps individuals and families advance along the economic continuum while helping to scale successful purpose-driven businesses, all of which creates stronger local economies.
