About Tapestry Community Capital

Tapestry Community Capital supports community organizations across Canada raise capital to

finance their dream projects. We have raised and currently manage $80 million in investment

Community Bond issued by their local community organization. Community bonds are an

innovative financing tool issued by a non-profit, charity, or co-operative organization for the

purpose of investing in a capital asset.
