National Coalition for Community Capital (NC3)Seed Fund Grantee Durham, North Carolina comcapcoalition.org/
NC3’s mission is to democratize financial systems, where empowered citizen investors catalyze the growth of locally-rooted ventures creating economic opportunity for all. NC3 is part network, part think-tank, and part collaborative formed by a group of entrepreneurs, investors, legal and financial professionals, educators, journalists, researchers, and committed citizens, who have come together to address specific gaps in the shift towards a more sustainable economy. NC3 is specifically committed to the intentional inclusion of communities and entrepreneurs historically excluded due to class, race, ethnicity, gender, or sexual orientation. The Seed Fund Grant will be used to begin building an online library of community capital resources, including how-to-guides, case studies, and sample offering documents to support community investment and local economic development movements around the country.
