In 2017 the Center was acquired by Virginia Community Capital (VCC), a community development financial institution (CDFI), to be part of the team that launched LOCUS Impact Investing, a social enterprise with a mission to empower place-focused foundations to invest their capital locally to build prosperous, vibrant communities. The Center's community development philanthropy work and analytic tools, including Transfer of Wealth™ Analysis, will continue to evolve and bring value to foundations as part of the broader LOCUS mission.

We look forward to providing a more comprehensive range of solutions for communities through this transition!
