Through increased access, better data quality, and a large and diverse portfolio of community partners, CNote is able to offer cash and fixed income opportunities at scale for investors.
It has never been easier to align your investments with your values.
CNote works with federally-certified community development financial institutions (CDFIs) and low-income designated (LID) credit unions, as well as other mission-driven financial institutions.
These community-focused enterprises meet strict federal program guidelines, have robust financial performance histories, and have consistently delivered financial resources and increased lending activity in under-served communities.
