About Raza Development Fund (RDF):
Raza Development Fund, Inc. (“RDF”) is a Community Development Financial Institution (“CDFI”) that invests capital and creates financial solutions to increase opportunities for Latino and poor families nationwide.
Since its inception, RDF has invested over a billion dollars in the areas of Education, Affordable Housing, Healthcare, Social Services, and Social Entrepreneurship nationwide.
Our investment strategy is predicated on an ultra-high touch and value-added approach to supporting Latino-owned and controlled organizations that prioritize premium outcomes benefiting low-income communities. RDF’s market position as a preferred capital partner enables superior project sourcing capabilities; and our team of impact investment professionals care deeply about the success of our clients.
To that end, we bring more than just capital to the table – we make key connections; provide valuable advice; design and lead structured financings; and deliver innovative solutions. Operating as a non-regulated, specialty finance company, our due diligence process is decidedly values-based; fundamental, but forward-looking, and we actively embrace complexity to capitalize on differentiated, impact investment opportunities.
