Reducing Poverty Through Social Financing

We seek to raise awareness of the interrelated issues of poverty reduction, financial assets, and access to credit by providing loan guarantees, direct loans and bridge financing to non-profits working to reduce poverty.

"The Winnipeg Foundation looks at this investment through the Jubilee Fund as an integral part of its vision for long term community building and sustainability."

Richard Frost

CEO, Winnipeg Foundation

"The Jubilee Fund is an important local alternative that allows investors an opportunity to invest in the social as well as economic development of our community. Through its partnership with ACU since 2000, there is evidence of its impact not measured in direct financial returns but instead by individual lives transformed, neighborhoods revitalized and access to vital services thus improving the standard of living and quality of life for all."

Nigel R. Mohammed

Director, Community Financial Centre

“While we were thankful to be able to rent a building in a prime location, we are ecstatic to be able to own prime real estate and begin the process of investing money back into our organization. Jubilee Fund’s support will assist us in our mission to improve the lives of people who call our city home.”

James Kostuchuk

Chair, Portage Community Revitalization Corporation Inc.
