For this month's Partner Feature, we would like to highlight The California Endowment (TCE). "TCE understands that good housing is foundational to the health of individuals and communities," said Tom Collishaw, CEO of Self-Help Enterprises. "Their investment in our real estate development activities is reflective of this mission focus on health, and is a key to expanding our impact in the San Joaquin Valley."
"TCE was excited to rekindle its partnership with SHE via a direct Program-Related Investment in 2020," said Christine Ryan, Manager of Program-Related Investments at TCE. "As a statewide foundation, TCE recognizes SHE as a key capital actor in a nonurban ecosystem. TCE’s impact investing team (IIT) was eager to support SHE via loan capital to further its mission. SHE’s value goes well beyond housing, and the IIT wanted investment funding to support an organization with a clear commitment to community and sustainability. The partnership also offers an opportunity for SHE and TCE Staff to deepen our relationship."
