Community development Services
Why Profound Hope Industries?
Profound Hope Industries specializes in working with the financial services, technology, and non-profit sectors around community development, corporate social responsibility, and community engagement.
Let Profound Hope Industries help you build a culture of impact that your leadership, customers, and employees can feel good about.
Organizations are built to solve problems. No matter the industry, a strong company provides a solution to a need. Tech companies build products that connect people across distances and divides. Financial service providers help people build stability. Non-profits help people thrive. Service companies take on the work of tackling a task that someone finds difficult or time consuming.
However, our social challenges have created greater demand for real solutions that work. Income inequality is rising, political polarization is increasing, and the pace of information makes it harder to stand out. Diversity, equity, and inclusion is in the spotlight.
Consumers are increasingly interested in supporting businesses they believe in. Social issue awareness is heightened by our digitally connected environment. Your organization can be the bridge to community wellness, and increase engagement and impact as a result.
At the same time, your organization still has to keep its eye on operational efficiency and profitability, employee engagement and innovation while not losing sight of external challenges.
Making an impact sometimes feels aspirational instead of possible, but it is not impossible.
We will help you move your current business model forward so it makes the world a better place, and can provide support to engage employees in order to navigate the change from start to finish.
Profound Hope Industries offers a range of services to CDFIs, including support in compliance, grant-writing, strategic planning, demographic analysis, and organizational change management. Custom operational support is available on a limited basis. Pre-planning support is also offered to organizations interested in becoming CDFI-certified, or to organizations interested in partnering more closely with a local CDFI.
