Partnership with Raza

Foresight plans to venture with the Raza Development Fund (RDF), which is a CDFI (Community Development Financial Institutions Fund).

Community Development Financial Institutions, CDFIs, are lenders that have received approval from the Treasury Department to play a critical role in the economy by bringing investment and resources to communities that have historically been underserved.

RDF is one of the most successful CDFIs. Of the approximately 1,000 CDFIs in the United States, RDF is one of only a handful to have an investment grade rating by S&P Global Ratings.
