We know that Native community development financial institutions (CDFIs) are game-changers for Native communities. But it’s not just us. Foundations, banks, asset management firms, financial institutions, and other funders and partners do, too!

In this new video, created by Northwest Area Foundation, you’ll hear about some of the many reasons why they’ve invested in Native CDFIs as trusted partners with deep community relationships. They’re excited about Native CDFIs as allies for sustainable impact and long-term, culturally grounded economic growth. They believe in our work because it opens up opportunities for successful loans, credit, entrepreneurship, jobs, and much more in Native communities.

Watch the video for the fuller story on why they’re investing in us.
