In a year when the extraordinary became the ordinary, when the COVID-19 pandemic, social unrest and economic uncertainty threatened to upend the hard work of our communities, CCLF and our partners were ready to act.
CCLF’s 2020 Annual Report, entitled Made For This, highlights our response to the multiple crises of 2020 as we continued lending to social enterprise, community facility, affordable housing and commercial retail projects.
The Report’s digital platform fully outlines CCLF’s 2020 financial results, features an interactive map of CCLF’s Chicagoland loans in its portfolio, and includes profiles of CCLF borrowers and their projects – BSD (Building Self-Determination), The UPS Store Woodlawn, Bubbly Dynamics and ILRE.
Made For This was designed and developed by Blue Daring, a Women’s Business Enterprise (WBE), in conjunction with Calvin L. Holmes, CCLF President; Juan Calixto, Vice President of External Relations; and Pamela Graves, Marketing and Communications Manager. Digital development was made possible by Blueshoon and select photography was provided by Steve Becker Photography and Ana Miyares Photography, LLC.
