Southwest Washington Impact Investment Fund for Transformation

The SWIIFT Initiative puts your philanthropic capital to work in greater ways than ever before. By providing low-interest loans to high-impact projects and programs, we help scale big visions into real-life impact. These investments can build affordable housing faster and unlock major funding streams to address local needs. As loans are repaid, your charitable assets generate a return that can be reinvested into the community time and time again.

How SWIIFT Works

Our innovative approach recycles charitable capital to create lasting impact. Here’s how it works:

    • Donors invest in the SWIIFT Initiative
    • Low-interest loans go to nonprofits for high-impact projects
    • Local organizations deliver services and scale programs faster
    • Repaid loans are returned to SWIIFT to be recycled for more good works
    • After 5 years, charitable dollars can be returned to DAF for future grantmaking
