The Community Capital Initiative is a multi-year initiative to develop enhanced policy and ecosystem infrastructure to support the start-up and scale-up of place-based capital organizations in urban, rural, and Northern communities in Ontario and across the country.
SVX provides an administrative home for this initiative which is stewarded by partners including the Ontario Trillium Foundation and Pillar Nonprofit Network, with the goals to collectively design relevant ecosystem and provincial and federal public policy infrastructure for community capital institutions, facilitate knowledge sharing amongst place-based capital and capacity organizations, and engage existing and new community capital organizations alongside mainstream leaders in philanthropy, public policy, and financial institutions.
