Investing in THF’s Mission
THF has been financing affordable housing and community development projects, and low to moderate income families since 1996. As a 20 year old loan fund the majority of our lending capital is investments from banks and financial institutions, foundations, government agencies, private entities, and other partners. That capital is deployed in a strategic and fiscally responsible manner to maximize impact and support catalytic change. We know our borrowers, their communities, and are responsive to their needs is a mission driven approach to lending. Our products are available throughout Tennessee.
THF offers several ways for an organization or company to make socially conscious investments while realizing a return. Qualified investments may be eligible for tax credits and/or credit under the Community Reinvestment Act (CRA).
New Make a Mark Loan
Make a Mark Loan is a creative financing program for artist live, work, or live/work space. Its design combines the energies of the creative community and the power of CDFI financing to impact livable space at the neighborhood level. Henri Matisse defined composition as “the art of arranging in a decorative manner the diverse elements at the painter’s command to express his feelings.” The Make a Mark program, with similarly creative elements, provides the capital to compose our livable spaces with the flare and drama of a Matisse painting.
