This Year, Back-to-School Is Not What It Used to Be

This fall, all schools are struggling to devise ways to safely educate students in the midst of the pandemic. The charter schools whose facilities LISC has helped fund and guide are no different. Yvonne Nolan, who directs LISC’s charter schools financing work, checks in with some of our partner schools, who are taking cues from their communities to forge a new kind of education, and points out the ways CDFIs can help with this difficult process.

That local example, and Flores’ arguments, are applicable to cities and towns all across the country. It’s imperative and high time that all municipalities heed the message.

Fortune magazine takes a close look at how Black-owned financial institutions are helping raise the volume on the call for racial equity and attracting more private money to their communities. LISC's Black Economic Development Fund is featured as a prime example of how corporate capital can start to flow to Black banks, CDFIs and other businesses in ways that truly benefit people of color.
