Another Boston is Possible

The Ujima Fund is the country’s first democratically governed investment fund, raising capital to finance small businesses, real estate and infrastructure projects in Boston’s working-class Black, Indigenous, and other communities of color, as part of the larger Boston Ujima Project. Ujima, named for the Swahili word for collective work and responsibility, uses a participatory budgeting process in combination with traditional underwriting to put economic development decisions in the hands of community members. The Boston Ujima Project invites investors and institutions from all walks to join us in financing an economy that grows local wealth in our city and builds community power for social change.
