LOCUS believes that philanthropy should work alongside communities to grow economies that work for all. We partner with philanthropy to use their capital as a tool to drive equitable prosperity, redefine their role as capital providers, and activate investments and endowments for community impact.
We meet our partners where they are and help them realize the vision of where they want to be. LOCUS works with philanthropy to educate stakeholders and develop strategies, identify and assess investments through advisory services; and service and manage investment funds and portfolios.

Local Impact Investing is a new tool for philanthropy and impact organizations that care about place. Check out the video below for an overview of how it all works.
