The Community Investment Network

The Community Investment Network(CIN) is a nonprofit organization, with a national scope, that encourages organizations and individuals to think and act more strategically with their giving to impel greater social change in their communities. The CIN promotes and supports strategic collective giving and community problem-solving by providing knowledge and information regarding various tools and strategies.

The concept of Community Philanthropy is central to this network. Community Philanthropy recognizes that solutions to community problems often originate in unexpected places and from people traditionally excluded from community decision-making. We believe that each of us has the power to become an instrument of change in our community.
