The Ottawa Community Loan Fund (OCLF) is leading the way toward a new kind of philanthropy that brings together business practices and charitable goals. OCLF is building a capital pool to invest in organizations working to increase affordable housing, and to social enterprises improving the lives of people in the city. United Way Ottawa will give OCLF more than $200,000
The future of charity is changing. In the same way that investors expect a return on their investments, donors expect results for the money they give to charities. This year, United Way Ottawa is supporting an organization that can do both. United Way will grant more than $200,000 over the next three years to the Ottawa Community Loan Fund (OCLF).
