We are funders, investors and builders with a passion for sustainable, timely solutions for our neighbours in need.
Measuring our impact proves we’re making a difference.
Central City Foundation’s innovative model creates exponential value beyond traditional foundation funding.
By investing our core capital in social purpose real estate (SPRE), we amplify your impact and create lasting change in our community.
40% of our capital is invested in social purpose real estate.
For every $1 spent, we create $3.90 in social benefit.
We have an 18% Social Return on Capital Investment (SROI).
We create $15M in community value each year from SPRE.
Together Neighbours Build Hope
We bring together neighbours and resources to transform our communities and help them thrive.
