Tzedec Community Investing
Bend the Arc is investing in an America that works for everyone. You can too. We invest in the common good and provide individuals and institutions with the opportunity to join us in this work through our Tzedec Community Investing program. Community investing is a proven strategy for decreasing poverty and expanding economic opportunity. We help people revitalize their neighborhoods through long-term investments in low-income areas that have been blighted by economic or natural disasters—sometimes by both.
