Our Mission

The mission of the Impact Capital Forum is to advance the microfinance, impact, and social enterprise sectors by providing a platform for innovation, collaboration, and thought leadership.

Founded in 2003, the organization previously was known as the Microfinance Club of NY.

July 2018: The Board of Directors is proud to announce our organization's new name - the Impact Capital Forum. Founded as the Microfinance Club of New York in 2003, we have steadily expanded our programs to encompass the impact sector by addressing the use of financial capital, human capital, technology and natural resources to improve the world, all through the lens of financial services. Thanks to all our members and partners who enthusiastically have supported this vision! We invite you to participate in our programs and thought leadership initiatives in this new chapter for ICF.

As of October 1, 2018, there will be an increase in our annual membership fee from $25 to $45. Students, seniors, low-income individuals and the unemployed will be eligible for a reduced rate of $25/year. This is the first change in many years and enables our organization to offer more educational programs, of greater depth and variety, at convenient business locations and with food & beverage.  Sign up, or renew your membership, before Oct.1st to take advantage of the legacy rate. Please browse our list of upcoming and recent events below!
