A Responsible Investment
OpenDoor needs low-income investments from individuals and institutions committed to social justice. These investments are pooled together and lent to affordable housing developers.  The Calvert Foundation, Paint Branch Unitarian Church and perhaps your neighbor down the street are all investors in OpenDoor. 

Your investment in OpenDoor is markedly different than investing in government bonds. The capital you invest is applied far more efficiently and is directed to an issue important to you  and your community. Your investment will receive a fixed interest rate (unless you choose to forgo it). Best of all, your investment transforms the lives of real families and real communities. Affordable housing means more families are able to buy or rent, which in turn means more family and community stability along with economic growth in the region.

OpenDoor’s goal is to create or preserve 5,000 homes in the next five years for working families and residents with special housing needs. To reach our goal, we need committed investors like you who share our vision.

Join the many organizations and more than 150 individuals who have matched their investment goals and their commitment to social justice by investing in OpenDoor.

Complete the investment form and mail to OpenDoor Housing Fund, 8605 Cameron Street, Suite 200, Silver Spring, MD 20910.
