CommunityDevelopmentBanking-L is an active, free, ongoing e-mail discussion
resource. Since 1994, this list has served community development practitioners
including Credit Unions, Banks, CDCs, Loan Funds, trade associations,
regulators, governments and partner non-profits. The discussions have ranged
from the practical (construction, mortgage, and small business lending; job
opportunities, conferences, fundraising) to legislative (CRA, HMDA, and CDFI) to
the cutting edge (micro-loan funds, peer lending, local currency, targeting
"The best Community Development Banking resource in Cyberspace."
CDFI Fundraising resources and networks
With changes to the CRA, fund development teams are going to be working
harder and smarter this year.
Are you fund development folks on this listserv familiar with any groups or
networks of people like ourselves, who specialize in fundraising for CDFIs?
There are a lot of generic resources (both for fundraising and for CDFI
management), but I would benefit from a network of fundraising specialists to
share ideas with. For instance, we are presently re-evaluating our donor
software and looking for a CRM tool, and of course, we're always looking at
funding and communications strategies for the future.
Please feel free to contact me off-list if you would like to share ideas or
existing networks or discussion lists that would not be of interest to the
