Baltimore Community Lending



Race, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (REDI) Statement


At Baltimore Community Lending, we are committed to revitalizing and strengthening underserved communities that face ongoing oppression due to systemic inequities. We support the creative and productive capacity of our staff, board of directors, stakeholders, and partners who represent a wide array of diverse backgrounds and experiences. Our ability to fulfill our mission is strengthened when we include the perspectives of individuals who represent a variety of differences, which may include but is not limited to: race, ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, physical and cognitive abilities, culture, religion, spiritual beliefs, and socioeconomic background.

Our work is focused on removing barriers for real estate developers and entrepreneurs who are unable to access mainstream financing. Black, Indigenous, and people of color and women disproportionately face these barriers as a consequence of historical and current economic disenfranchisement. Thus, our work emphasizes helping these populations join the economic mainstream. We believe in fostering intentional economic inclusion so that all individuals can have access to capital and thrive in clean, healthy, safe, and vibrant communities.
