CAIF - Canadian Alternative Investment Foundation
CAIF provides registered charities with access to low cost capital for projects of social benefit who are unable to obtain financing from conventional sources.
Areas of Expertise: Finance, Social Economy & Social Enterprise
CAIC invests in groups working for positive social change and community economic development in Canada that lack access to traditional financing. We are particularly interested in projects that promote alternative economic structures and acts as a catalyst to structural change. When making an investment, CAIC takes into consideration both the social benefit of a project and its business soundness. A project will not be considered unless it meets our criteria for both attributes.
