Celebrating 30 Years!  2023 marks Cinnaire's 30th Year transforming communities! It all started with Mark McDaniel at a card table with a phone and a rolodex in 1993. In 2023, we have six offices, 150 team members and we've generated more than $10 billion in community impact. Cinnaire is celebrating this monumental anniversary throughout the year with throwbacks on social media, celebrations with our team and partners, and days of dedicated community service across our organization.

What We Do

Cinnaire is a nonprofit community development financial organization that invests in people and places to transform communities through capital investments and development solutions. We believe that every community needs affordable housing and economic development in order to thrive.

Since 1993 we’ve been making high-impact investments and loans to developers and nonprofits that have resulted in more than $10 billion in community impact. Our investments focus on economically and racially marginalized communities that have been systematically denied access to capital. By leveraging innovative financial tools including the Low-Income Housing Tax Credit and the New Markets Tax Credit, we strive to change inequitable systems so that all people -- especially low-income and vulnerable individuals -- have the opportunities provided by living in healthy communities.
