Pacific Community Ventures is a one-of-a-kind organization. We fuel economic growth in lower-income California communities by investing financial and human capital in small businesses. In 2006, our innovative approach led University of California faculty to vote Pacific Community Ventures (PCV) as one of the twenty-five most brilliant ideas in California in the last quarter century. That same year, we opened local offices for our Business Advising program in Los Angeles, San Diego, and Fresno. We also launched our Employee Onramp program: we merged our IDA program and requirements that companies we invest in have profit-sharing with workers, with a new financial education program from Citibank and a partnership with TaxAid to provide free services.
