LOCUS empowers place-focused foundations to invest their capital locally to build prosperous, vibrant communities.
Foundation leaders who care about place are looking for an “on-ramp” to local investing for impact. To build the capacity of place-focused foundations to make direct community investments, Virginia Community Capital with the Center for Rural Entrepreneurship created a social enterprise called LOCUS Impact Investing. LOCUS can help foundations by assessing the landscape for deals, conducting due diligence, and then servicing and monitoring these community investments. Building on their collective expertise, LOCUS offers a continuum of solutions for foundations and donors as they define their role in this new era of community investing.
