LOCUS is the “on ramp” for foundations and donors who want to unlock their philanthropic capital to make direct mission investments to build more prosperous, vibrant communities.

LOCUS provides a roadmap for foundations interested in building their capacity and leadership for direct impact investing and helps by assessing the landscape for deals, conducting due diligence, and then structuring and monitoring these community investments. When foundations are ready to make direct mission-aligned investments, LOCUS can provide the support needed for foundations to effectively invest on their own or in partnership with other foundations.
