“Society grows great when older people plant trees under whose shade they shall never sit."
Helping Communities Work is a social purpose real estate collaborative founded by Encore and working to increase impact investing and foreign direct investment in opportunity zones and other distressed areas across the United States. Encore facilitates collaborations among nonprofit organizations, real estate developers, municipalities, bank depositors and place-based impact investors seeking innovative cash allocation and responsible investment opportunities.
Encore creates and aligns investment and bank deposit strategies designed to support the growth and sustainability of the nonprofit shared space community and the technology-assisted building and construction industry. Our Apprenticeship Power grants support human capital, small business and workforce development in the banking and financial services, energy, 3D printing and robotics industries.
Helping Communities Work supports the growth and geographic expansion of the Encore Family Office Fellowship and the Encore Opportunity Zone Fellowship, which is being hosted by the Center for Social Change (C4SC), a nonprofit shared space. C4SC is creating a diverse social impact strategy for opportunity zones in Florida.
