How the Ours to Own Initiative works
- Small investments — $20 and up — are pooled together to provide funding that communities need to grow and thrive.
- Our partners — nonprofits and community development organizations — work directly with the community to identify the best use of the money.
- Money is provided as loans to launch or expand small businesses, create more affordable housing, purchase land for community spaces — all the things that a city needs to flourish.
- Investors like you share in the returns, financially and socially, as businesses grow and communities thrive.
