Many investors are motivated to address the racial injustice and inequality experienced by Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC) individuals and communities. Confronting the economic disparities that BIPOC Americans face today will require comprehensive efforts that extend beyond philanthropy. Impact Investing can be a part of the solution by deploying investment dollars to support upward economic mobility for BIPOC families.

Impact investing offers investors an opportunity to pursue competitive financial returns while achieving measurable social impacts that align with their interests.

Gaps in annual earnings (even after controlling for education)
Real median earnings of full-time, full-year Black workers and White workers, 2000-2017

Black men earn 70% of what White men earn

Black women earn 78% of what White women earn

Earnings are wage and salary income. White refers to non-Hispanic Whites; Black refers to Black Americans alone. Because a redesign of the CPS ASEC in 2013 did not directly affect earnings, the data for 2013 are an average of the new and old series. Shaded areas denote recessions.

  • Increased home and business ownership along with larger investments from lenders helps create more stability and a greater sense of community
  • Stable communities lead to property appreciation, which creates more opportunities for BIPOC home and business owners to create wealth
  • These changes would represent a virtuous cycle of positive impact for BIPOC families and communities
  • A significant segment of the US population – over 23,000 census tracts in the US are >50% BIPOC – would be positively impacted by these improvements
