Create Real Change

Deposits from institutional partners like “Mastercard and the Mastercard Impact Fund who collectively deployed $20 million into Impact Cash® (formerly Promise Account)”1 help fund small business loans for women of color entrepreneurs like Toni Hopkins who turned her passion for entrepreneurship into a successful storefront, despite the challenges of the pandemic. 

Connect Capital to Causes

Empower Communities

Thanks to forward-thinking corporations and funders like Netflix, Cortegia Collins was able to address the shortage of quality childcare in her home town of St. Louis, Missouri by opening her own small business. A CNote partner CDFI helped her with the vital funding needed to open her own center and now supports Cortegia as she expands to a second location.
