The Social Finance Foundation is a wholesale lender of social finance, providing finance to social lending organisations so that they in turn can support community development and social enterprise.
The social lending organisations which SFF provides funding to are currently Clann Credo and Community Finance Ireland. SFF also has a subsidiary company, Microfinance Ireland, which lends to micro-enterprises, including start-ups and existing businesses.
In 2015 SFF partnered with Social Entrepreneurs Ireland to sponsor The Impact Series, a calendar of events designed to inspire innovative ideas and to spark discussion and debate around key social issues and the role that social entrepreneurship can have in addressing these issues.
