Impact Reporting & Video Marketing
LifeCity’s impact reports help your company measure, market and grow your impact. We conduct impact reports for companies and developers, investors, and intermediaries, such as Community Development Entities (CDEs) and Community Development Financial Institutions (CDFIs).
LifeCity specializes in New Markets Tax Credit financing (NMTCs) impact studies. Whether you are acting in the NMTC space as a CDE, investor, CDFI, or as a Qualified Low-income Community Business (QLICB), LifeCity can help you tell your story of impact. Our impact reporting services are available at any stage of the NMTC allocation process. We also can help analyze and aggregate your impact data across investments by developing a customized Impact Management System (IMS).
Third Party Impact Reports provide:
A simple, personalized design
Stories told through the lives of the people you touch
A beneficial assessment that simultaneously supports your client and business interests
Increased credibility to investors and funders
Standardized impact indicators that align with national metrics like GIIRS, B Corps Certification, LEED, and others
In addition to reporting services, LifeCity produces videos to capture the catalytic impact of projects. Below, find a recent video LifeCity completed on behalf of Rural Development Partners (RDP), a CDE based in Iowa.
Here’s another video LifeCity produced for AMCREF Community Capital and MuniStrategies, two impact investors focusing on the rural south.
