New Hampshire Charitable Foundation has considerable impact investing experience, and has made close to 40 direct loans to nonprofits. In 1983, the foundation helped to found one of the first CDFIs in the country, the New Hampshire Community Loan Fund. The loan fund is widely respected for its ROC-NH program, which enables residents of manufactured-home parks to purchase and manage their communities as cooperative corporations. The foundation continues to support the Community Loan Fund through $2 million in loan and grant assistance. The investments support the Community Loan Fund’s Business Finance program, as well as technical assistance for loan recipients, and Individual Development Accounts. The foundation is planning to expand its impact investing work this year in partnership with donors.
