Space for Social Enterprises in Denver to Flourish

Through the Ours To Own initiative we're making loans to organizations that create more vibrant neighbourhoods and stronger communities in U.S. cities, with Denver as one of our pilot cities. One of our lead partners in Denver is the Urban Land Conservancy, a nonprofit that acquires and develops real estate assets for sustainable development. ULC recently cut the ribbon on the Social Enterprise Foundry, a 44,000 square foot warehouse that hosts office space for social enterprises working in clean energy, energy conservation and youth development in local communities.

“Ours To Own was built to provide local residents with a way to own and invest in Denver’s sustainable and equitable future. This property is another great example of the power and impact of bringing local, grassroots financing to community development."
