2023 OFN Conference: Capital Meets Purpose

The OFN Conference is one of the largest, most anticipated gatherings for community development financial institutions (CDFIs).

From October 15-18, more than 2,000 CDFI practitioners, funders, and investors, as well as policymakers and other CDFI stakeholders, will gather in Washington, D.C., to learn, share, and network. The theme of this year’s 39th annual conference is Capital Meets Purpose.

Across bold, thought-provoking plenaries and deep dive sessions, attendees will explore the industry’s founding purpose of investing capital for people and what it means today. We’ll look closely at important topics like climate finance, economic uncertainty, the future CDFI workforce, post-pandemic capital deployment, and racial, social, and economic justice.

This is a must-attend event for anyone who believes investment capital has a purpose far beyond profit.
