Capital Meets Purpose

The CDFI Industry Event of the Year Returns!


Community development financial institutions (CDFIs) are lenders that provide fair, responsible financing and services to rural, urban, Native, and other communities that traditional finance has not historically reached. The CDFI industry exists to support low-income communities and communities of color.


This year, our annual conference focuses on how CDFI financing advances racial, social, and climate justice. In other words, how Capital Meets Purpose.



At the OFN Annual Conference, we will highlight the foundation and core purpose of our industry by emphasizing that investment capital has a purpose far beyond profit. 

We'll look closely at topics including climate finance, economic uncertainty, the future CDFI workforce, post-pandemic capital deployment, and racial, social, and economic justice.


Media are invited to attend all conference events. Space is limited for select conference activities. Please RSVP in advance to Lisa Chensvold.
