About Us
 

Mission and History

Virginia Community Capital (VCC) is a multi-million dollar non-profit, community development financial institution (CDFI) and banking entity providing innovative loan and investment solutions for affordable housing and economic development projects in the Commonwealth of Virginia. Our mission is to offer innovative, flexible financial products designed to support housing and community development ventures, increase jobs and build sustainable communities. VCC offers loan capital that is broader than bank lending to projects that have a positive community impact in low- to moderate-income communities in underserved geographies and markets.

While originally chartered in 1995, VCC was transformed in the fall of 2005 from a small CDFI doing microlending and IDA programs in 3 counties to a larger CDFI with $17 million in equity capital operating throughout the Commonwealth. By year-end 2007, VCC was a viable, statewide CDFI with a loan portfolio of approximately $10 million with 0% delinquencies. VCC completed 23 community development projects; creating or preserving 623 affordable housing units and creating or preserving 83 living-wage, permanent job opportunities. Additionally, the capital base of the organization grew from $15 million at YE 2005 to $19.1 million at YE 2007. Assets of the organization grew to $28.3 million. As the organization ended 2007, it had also laid the foundation for the opening of a regulated community development bank and began to focus on new strategic directives to guide its growth for the next 3 years.

Our Goals

VCC’s Strategic Plan includes 3 years of growth and continued service to the Commonwealth. The goals and objectives presented in the plan include:

  • Leverage the success of the organization and the current capital base to grow assets to $70 million while maintaining fiscally-conservative, sustainable governance policies.
  • Create and deliver mission-based products appropriate for both the bank and the CDFI to meet the community development needs of the Commonwealth.
  • Create an operating environment where core costs are fully self-supporting and therefore, grant income is utilized entirely to leverage technical assistance and other non-profit activities.
  • Create a community development organization known for its responsiveness, technical ability, inclusive culture, and creativity; and is viewed as a leader of innovative community development programs – utilizing both state and private capital partnerships.
