Denver Social Impact Bond Report

In 2016, The Denver Foundation was given the opportunity to participate a unique program to address chronic homelessness in Denver. Run by the City and County of Denver, the Denver Supportive Housing Social Impact Bond initiative (Denver SIB) took a new approach to funding: a pay-for-success loan model. The Denver Foundation’s contribution with support from engaged philanthropists, was pooled with funds from seven other investors and lent to the city for the program for the next five years. This innovative venture in addressing chronic homelessness in Denver found success on many levels. Learn more in our report.
