About Pacific Community Ventures: Founded in 1998 and certified as a CDFI in 2003, PCV is a nonprofit with the belief that helping grow businesses that are located in and/or hire from lower-income areas is one of the most effective ways to create healthy local economies. For 17 years, our programs have created economic opportunities in lower-income communities by working directly with entrepreneurs, providing small business advising and loans, and also by furthering the practice of impact investing, which drives capital to communities often overlooked by mainstream investors. We believe that bringing high-level support to companies that create jobs in LMI areas, and also advocating for increased investment in these areas, will have a transformative economic impact on lower-income communities.
