About Us > Our HistoryThe Leviticus Fund was founded in 1983 by church groups located in the New York metropolitan area who are members of the Tri-State Coalition for Responsible Investment. These founding members were already involved in shareholder advocacy – using their assets to influence corporate policies that impact the economically poor – and saw the creation of the Leviticus Fund as a way to directly respond to needs in low-income communities. The Fund is set up as a not-for-profit corporation and its voting members represent religious organizations of varied faith denominations.
Investments into Leviticus are made by individuals, organizations and financial institutions that recognize the positive human impact community investing has on underserved areas. These investments, in the form of loans with terms of one to five years or more, create a low-interest pool of capital that is re-lent to nonprofit community development organizations and small businesses serving New York, New Jersey and Connecticut. The Fund manages three loan programs: affordable and supportive housing, child care facilities and not-for-profit facilities.
Leviticus Fund is certified by the Community Development Financial Institutions Fund of the U.S. Treasury Department and an active member of Opportunity Finance Network.
