Overview

We Strive to Provide Meaningful Change

Through our local expertise and lending we have been able to create meaningful change for underserved individuals and neighborhoods in and around Washington, D.C., for over 30 years. Our impact is long-term and far-reaching: Our lending creates jobs, affordable housing and strong community organizations that increase economic opportunity.

Wacif’s true impact is greater than the amount we’ve lent, the number of jobs created or the number of homes built. That impact is seen when these jobs allow parents to save for their kids’ college tuition and it is felt when a family is handed the keys to a home it can afford.
