Impact investing allows mission-motivated investors to move their dollars beyond charitable giving and grantmaking, to consider both financial return and social good.
The NOAH Impact Fund works with socially motivated institutional investors to make real estate investment commitments to stabilize the lives of low-income households and communities through the preservation of naturally occurring affordable housing, with a competitive double-bottom-line return on funds invested.
The NOAH Impact Fund currently seeks $25 to $30 million in a combination of private and public capital to capitalize the fund. These investments will capitalize $100 million+ in acquisitions and enable the fund to acquire 1000+ rental homes within 2+ years. Affordability in these units will be preserved for at least 15 years for low-income families, individuals, and seniors.
Acquisitions will be in concert with high-performing nonprofit and socially motivated for-profit operating partners. Good stewardship is critical to preserve long-term rent affordability.
The NOAH Impact Fund targets CRA-qualified affordable housing investments, and investments which qualify as endowment-funded Mission or Program Related Investments (MRIs or PRIs) for foundations. Socially motivated investors are encouraged to contact the Fund to learn more.
