Join OFN as a Member or Ally

Opportunity Finance Network (OFN) helps money flow to people and places where traditional finance doesn’t reach. We do this by maximizing the effectiveness of our growing membership network of mission-driven community lenders, including community development financial institutions (CDFIs) and industry allies. Offering access to direct financing, learning opportunities, industry events, advocacy, and more, OFN helps community lenders invest in environmental, racial, and economic justice.
