Raising Impact for People & the Planet with Leveraged Efforts

The RIPPLE Initiative

Clearinghouse CDFI is proud to announce the new RIPPLE Initiative. RIPPLE, which stands for “Raising Impact for People and the Planet with Leveraged Efforts,” focuses on increasing beneficial impacts through lending.

As a B Corp, we consider community impact an important aspect of every decision. This includes our own impact and that of our borrowers.

Coming Soon: For-Profit Quick Impact Assessment (QIA)

Our Goal

We seek to incentivize all of our for-profit borrowers to measure and improve their own community, governance, environmental, and workforce impacts through the RIPPLE Initiative. Our goal is to create more positive impact ripples through the community development projects we finance in CA, NV, AZ, NM, and Sovereign Nations in the Western United States.
