LOCUS Impact Investing
In 2017 the Center partnered with Virginia Community Capital to form a new social enterprise to help place-focused community foundations with impact investing.
What We Do
Our mission is to empower place-focused foundations to invest their capital locally to build prosperous, vibrant communities. LOCUS is the "on ramp" for foundations and donors who want to unlock their philanthropic capital. LOCUS provides a roadmap for foundations interested in building their capacity for direct impact investing and more.
When foundations are ready to make direct mission-aligned investments, LOCUS can provide the support needed to effectively invest on their own or in partnership with other foundations. LOCUS provides a comprehensive set of assessment, advisory and investment management services and support. To learn more about what we do, please visit our website and download the following:
