Fulcrum Fellowship Application

The Fulcrum Fellowship at the Center for Community Investment is an intensive, hands-on program designed to equip leaders with the community investment, racial equity, and adaptive leadership knowledge and skills to ignite lasting change in communities.

CCI’s capital absorption framework is an approach that communities can use to organize capital for what matters most to them: climate resilience infrastructure, shared ownership of community assets, the production and preservation of affordable housing at a scale that meets community needs, inclusive economic development, and much more. By articulating a shared priority, creating and executing an investable pipeline of projects, and improving their enabling environment (the context in which investment takes place), communities can move toward achieving their goals at scale and building more effective community investment systems so that they can more easily and efficiently accomplish those goals. 

To be considered for the 2024 Fulcrum Fellows class, which runs from March 2024 to March 2025, you must submit your application by Saturday, September 30, 2023 at 11:59pm PST.
