Founded in 1988 with a $75,000 grant from Civic Progress, the St. Louis Equity Fund recognized the need to create a vehicle to syndicate tax credits created by the Tax Reform Act of 1986. The first Fund created in 1988 raised $3.25 million and facilitated the production of 105 affordable homes. Since that time, the St. Louis Equity Fund has raised more than $367 million of capital which has produced approximately 4,446 housing units having a total development cost of $644 million. Investors are now being sought as the St. Louis Equity Fund works diligently to provide continued benefits to its investors, partners and the neighborhoods we serve.
