Common Future offers strategic advice and implementation support to help funders amplify impact, launch new ideas and investments, and increase access to on-the-ground experience and knowledge.

We have nearly two decades of experience convening leaders in philanthropy, finance, and business to develop collaborative, systems-level solutions. The result of this is a national network of experts accessible for consulting. Our network is united by a deep commitment to equity and local community development.

It is composed of executive experts on: community investment strategies, cooperative financing, rural ecosystems, democratic ownership models, structuring community capital funds, equitable food and farm financing, and more. Working with this network, and the Common Future staff, provides access to experts who are rooted in their communities, as well as funders with a shared mission to invest in equitable economic development.
