We are excited to invite our key stakeholders in the Greater Philadelphia Area to our Inaugural Friends of the Fund Event. It is a special evening of celebration and networking where invitees will meet some of our amazing clients and hear how, together, we are transforming communities. Our clients inspire us every day with their incredible stories.

While networking invitees will enjoy assorted hors d’oeuvres and specialty food stations. Complimentary cocktails and beverages will also be served.

In addition to being our Inaugural event in Philadelphia, this year’s event is also exciting because it marks 30 years of Community Impact for our organization with 27 years directly to the Philadelphia Community through Community First Fund and the legacy services provided by Finanta. Finanta and Community First Fund merged in 2020 to strengthen and enhance our ability to make innovative community impact.

Impacting our Community is not possible without aspiring entrepreneurs and social-minded companies, organizations and individuals coming together and choosing to make a difference. Community First Fund is committed to being a catalyst for change by transforming lives, businesses and communities one transaction at a time. In order to achieve our vision for inclusive, equitable, and vibrant communities where individuals prosper, triumph over poverty and live free from discrimination!
