About Opportunity Finance Network (OFN)

OFN Helps Capital Flow Where it Counts

Based in Washington, D.C., Opportunity Finance Network (OFN) is a leading national network of more than 360 community development financial institutions (CDFIs) nationwide.

Our network of community development loan funds, banks, venture capital funds, and credit unions works to ensure communities underserved by mainstream finance have access to affordable, responsible financial products and services.

OFN is a trusted intermediary between CDFIs and public and private sector partners — foundations, corporations, banks, government agencies, and others. For more than 30 years, our team has helped OFN partners invest in CDFIs to catalyze change and create economic opportunities for people and places traditional finance doesn’t reach.

Money, Strength, Voice

OFN supports CDFIs through three pillars to help underinvested rural, urban, and Native communities join the economic mainstream.

Money

OFN manages $1 billion to help CDFIs lend and invest in markets underserved by mainstream banks.

Strength

Voice

OFN raises awareness of CDFIs and amplifies the voice of the industry through public policy advocacy and communications.
