Resilient Capital™ is impact-driven. Through it, Vancity and Vancouver Foundation make debt and equity investments in social enterprises, allowing them to address social and environmental challenges and build resilient communities. Financing from the program aims to bridge the gap that social enterprises sometimes experience between government and other grants and access to conventional lending.
“We are pleased to participate in this breakthrough initiative. We are certain that Resilient Capital will demonstrate both that there is a significant appetite for investments that truly take account of multiple bottom lines and that the Resilient Capital investment portfolio will be of major benefit to investees, investors and communities.”
Julia Levy, President, The ILLAHIE Foundation
