Community Finance

Impact investment that secures New Zealand's future.

The lack of affordable options has resulted in a desperate need for community housing, however funding for these projects remains a major barrier to getting new homes built.

Community Finance’s lending platform uses impact investing to help make home ownership a reality, an perfect match for Clare's focus on impact investing.

In a united approach alongside the government, the building industry and the community housing sector, Community Finance takes impact investment by Clare, amongst other major investors, and unlocks access to warm, dry homes to improve standards of living and build stronger, more resilient people and communities.

The Aotearoa Pledge has a bold vision to raise $100 million in 2021 to tackle New Zealand’s housing shortage.Projects underway with the Salvation Army and CORT Community Boards are bringing to life social housing with income related rent subsidy.

The Sustainable Business Awards has celebrated success in sustainability for the past 19 years, and we are thrilled that Clare partner Community Finance has been chosen as a finalist for the Outstanding Collaboration category in the 2021 Sustainable Business Awards for their creation and collaboration on The Aotearoa Pledge.
