Community Capital Fund

Since 2012, the Community Capital Fund has deployed more than $1,500,000 to neighborhoods and grassroots organizations, as well as entrepreneurs and small businesses, organized nine Community Development Workshops that have collectively drawn more than 2,100 community leaders and fiscally sponsored 10 social ventures that have raised more than $1,500,000 collectively.


Every community wants to improve the quality of life of its residents but might also face adversity when trying to create change. Our communities are creative and skilled in solving problems, mobilizing volunteers, building strong networks and growing entrepreneurs and small businesses, but too often, a lack of access to funding sources prevents them from bringing their ideas to fruition.

Since 2012, the Community Capital Fund (CCF) has invested in innovative and measurable community development that aligns with and strengthens the financial, human and social capital of under-resourced neighborhoods in the Greater Kansas City Metropolitan Area. CCF is an affiliate organization of AltCap, a Kansas City-based Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI), and Equity2, an impact investment firm.

CCF regularly works with local cities and other groups to create and administer funds for small businesses. Learn more about these past programs here.

CCF supports local community development and social entrepreneurs through its Fiscal Sponsorship Program.  Social entrepreneurs selected for this program can seek grants and tax-deductible donations without having their own 501(c)(3) status, thus increasing the capacity and impact of their projects.
