CFC drives towards equitable systemic change in Southeastern North Carolina by collaborating with community partners to leverage local assets, illuminate actionable insights, and catalyze innovative programming.
We accomplish this work by applying data science techniques to gain insights and mobilizing private sector capital through impact investing programs.
We believe that we should do all things through an equity lens. Our whole society benefits from lifting all people, especially those who have been most marginalized
We believe that an accurate and robust data infrastructure is the great equalizer in the fight for a better tomorrow.
We believe that the community is the biggest driver and producer of positive outcomes and actionable insights. We follow their lead to drive change.
