The Canadian Alternative Investment Foundation (CAIF) provides access to low-cost capital to registered charities with projects of social benefit that are unable to obtain financing from conventional sources. The foundation also provides technical assistance/organizational capacity building grants to ensure loan recipients are successful in their ventures.

The foundation is a sister organization to the Canadian Alternative Investment Cooperative and as such builds on its excellent reputation, experience and knowledge in social financing.
