National Coalition for Community Capital

Welcome to the National Coalition for Community Capital (NC3)

We are collaborative servants—entrepreneurs, investors, legal and financial professionals, educators, journalists, researchers, and committed citizens—who have come together to address specific gaps in the national effort to shift towards a sustainable economy. Our main focus is on the retention of capital in communities and our special emphasis is on how to better serve those who have been isolated and under-resourced. We hope to work with other entities and organizations to round out the important work being done across the country in this area. To improve and magnify the impact of this work, we have formed the National Coalition for Community Capital (NC3). Part think-tank, part collaborative, we’ve chosen to focus on key issues we believe are critical to forward movement. We decided to share our commitment in the form of a Manifesto. While we are a founding team of ten, we have developed multiple avenues for others to be involved. Join us!

Our Mission

The mission of NC3 is to help move a significant portion of the estimated $40+ trillion Americans have in long-term savings from Wall Street to local and social entrepreneurs, and to inspire similar shifts worldwide. We are especially committed to the intentional inclusion of communities and entrepreneurs historically excluded due to class, race, ethnicity, gender, or sexual orientation.
