Inclusive Prosperity Capital (IPC) has received a loan for $15 million from mission-aligned partner Amalgamated Bank to expand its work in underserved communities and markets across the country. A subsidiary of Amalgamated Financial Corp. (NASDAQ: AMAL) Amalgamated Bank is a mission-driven, full-service commercial bank that empowers organizations and individuals to advance positive social and environmental change.
“IPC’s partnership with a forward-thinking financial institution like Amalgamated Bank is an important step in our continued growth. IPC is excited to begin deploying Amalgamated’s capital with our programs and partners to accelerate decarbonization and address climate injustices. Partnerships like those with Amalgamated make it possible to open markets and investment channels that make the built environment more resilient for everyone – the core mission of IPC,” said Kerry O’Neil, CEO, Inclusive Prosperity Capital.
With the historic passage of the Inflation Reduction Act in the Senate (congratulations and thank you Senators!), including funding for a national climate bank with significant resources for low-income and disadvantaged communities, IPC is ready to scale up.
As Joe Evans of Kresge Foundation said about the Amalgamated Bank loan , “…IPC provides a core piece of green banking infrastructure, bringing important project capital, technical expertise, products other community lenders can leverage…”
Thank you Amalgamated for your investment and Kresge for risk mitigation support. The partnership with Amalgamated Bank and other funders like Kresge Foundation means we’re ready to get to work with all of you!
