Director, The Fund for African American Wealth

GCI is looking to launch a pioneering new effort aimed at bridging the African-American racial wealth gap in Colorado. Similar to the rest of the US, It is estimated that the wealth of a median black family in the state is roughly 1/13th of that of a median white family today. The organization is in the early stages of designing and piloting an innovative platform aimed at deploying innovative capital solutions that can accelerate wealth creation among African American families in the Denver metro area. The initial focus of this effort is to launch a investment fund focused on catalyzing African American homeownership, which continues to be one of the most effective ways for families to build intergenerational wealth.

We are looking for an entrepreneurial individual with deep roots in the black community, and with professional experience in community banking, mortgage lending, and/or financial services to help lead this effort. The Director will oversee a portfolio of efforts aimed at addressing the racial wealth gap through, while focusing initially on the launch and operation of the homeownership fund. The position is based in Denver, Colorado.
