The Moving to Opportunity Fund
A scalable impact investing model for breaking the cycle of poverty
For low-income kids growing up in concentrated poverty,
the American Dream is an empty promise.
Research shows that enabling these kids to move to higher opportunity communities dramatically improves their life prospects. But historically, there has been no scalable model for doing so.
We want to change that.
The Mission: Social Impact
Our mission is to pioneer a model capable of putting
low-income children born into concentrated
poverty on the path to college.
We are a social impact focused real estate investment firm.
Real Estate Investing
We acquire high quality apartment buildings in communities with
top-ranked public schools
We reserve a portion of the units for low-income families with children from neighborhoods of concentrated poverty
And we provide internally funded mobility counseling and supportive services
A New Paradigm
Our ultimate goal is to pioneer a model that is
self-sustaining, scalable, and replicable.
With overhead and supportive services costs covered by management fees, the Fund requires no philanthropic support
By delivering market rate returns, we can tap into a virtually unlimited pool of mainstream capital
Once replicated by others, the model has the potential to provide hundreds of thousands of kids with access to top-ranked schools
