2023 OFN Conference

CDFIs are the industry where Capital Meets Purpose. In October, the CDFI industry gathered in Washington — our nation’s capital — for the 39th annual OFN Conference to explore its founding purpose of investing capital for people and what it means today.

The conference featured dozens of expert-led sessions on a variety of topics most critical to CDFIs today, including green finance, economic uncertainty, the future CDFI workforce, post-pandemic capital deployment, and social, racial, and economic justice.
