Benefits of the Network


"Working with Partners has been very beneficial to our loan fund, primarily because it has allowed us to participate in larger loans that have had a greater impact on our target market. Partners has helped to build our capacity as a small and emerging loan fund, offering their expertise on multiple issues."

Our Model

“Prior to rehabilitation, the building was boarded up, with graffiti covered windows and an uncontrolled parking lot plagued by drug dealing and prostitution. The restoration not only reclaimed the building’s physical beauty, but also played a central role in inspiring further investment at this intersection and in ultimately transforming it from a corner characterized by crime and vacant store fronts to a central hub of Latino commerce in South Minneapolis. Partners helped make it happen.

Our Work

Our idea is simple. Our work is pioneering. Our results are far reaching.

Partners’ mission is to advance economic justice and racial equity by partnering with and strengthening financial institutions to bring capital,create opportunity, and build wealth.

Our Story

Our history is rooted in the corporate responsibility movement of the 1970s. Using their corporate investments, religious institutions pressured companies to provide better working conditions or disinvest in Apartheid South Africa. These institutions also aimed to use a portion of their retirement and other investments to encourage access to capital for credit-starved low-income communities in the United States and to proactively support community organizations whose values resonated with their own.


Our vision is a world where low-income people have the means to support themselves and their families in dignity.
