About Community Investment Corporation
Community Investment Corporation is a nonprofit economic development organization dedicated to the prosperity of Pima County and the surrounding area since 1996.
Committed to expanding economic opportunities, we pursue three distinct program areas that are foundational to individual and community well-being:
- Education – Assisting schools with access to capital and reporting information to meet bond compliance requirements, as well as, aspiring to assist Pima County parents by making school level data easily accessible and free
- Home Ownership – Helping would-be homeowners through down payment assistance and tax credits
- Entrepreneurship – Providing much needed financing to small businesses and nonprofits, as well as, introducing innovative systems to promote private investment in early stage businesses
Our goal is to promote economic inclusion for all members of southern Arizona, regardless of socioeconomic status. We will achieve it by leveraging our financial and knowledge capital into the areas of our local economy where expansion of access is desperately needed. Specifically, our work ensures that more people in our community can buy homes, can access the education they want for their children, and can get the funding they need to start, sustain, and grow their small businesses.
The guiding principle we live by is: Nobody who has the desire and diligence to participate in our economy should ever be on the outside looking in.
