Kachuwa Impact Fund closes $3.2M in annual stock offering

Boulder, Colorado, February 15, 2024 – Last fall, Kachuwa Impact Fund closed its annual fundraise, raising more than $3.2 million in new equity via a private stock offering. Kachuwa Impact Fund has conducted a raise for each of the last six years. Kachuwa Impact Fund is an investment cooperative whereby each investor becomes a member of the cooperative and a co-owner of its impact asset portfolio.

“We are pleased with the results of our sixth annual stock offering,” said Blake Jones, President of Kachuwa Impact Fund, “and it’s great to see that our incoming members are excited about our cooperative and its unique approach to impact investing.”

“We are proud that our membership has now grown to more than 225 members and that nearly 40% of them are non-accredited investors,” said Alicia Robb, Vice President of Kachuwa Impact Fund. “One of our goals is for our cooperative to be as inclusive as possible, which is why we have a low minimum investment requirement of $5,000 and why we choose to issue 1099-DIV tax forms instead of K-1s.”

“So far, our members have invested over $20 million in our cooperative,” said Lizette Peña, Treasurer of Kachuwa Impact Fund, “and we’re managing an impact portfolio of over $30 million of impact real estate, private equity, and private debt investments. Our cooperative members are seeking a reasonable return – but not an extractive return – by investing in an impactful and diverse portfolio like Kachuwa’s.”

According to Gwénaël Hagan, Secretary of Kachuwa Impact Fund, “We are proud of the growing high- impact portfolio that Kachuwa has invested in, and we are excited to broaden our pipeline of impact investing opportunities.”

Based in Colorado, Kachuwa Impact Fund (pronounced KAW-choo-wuh) is an investment cooperative and public benefit corporation focused on owning and operating “impact real estate” and investing in privately held “impact companies.” As a cooperative, Kachuwa is democratically owned and controlled by its members. By design, at least 60% of Kachuwa’s assets are real estate and no more than 40% of its assets are investments. Kachuwa is an open-ended, “evergreen" fund, and it is similar to a Real Estate Investment Trust (REIT) combined with a mutual fund whose diversified holdings have a positive impact on society and the environment. Kachuwa’s goal is not to maximize financial return at any cost; instead, it is to create positive impact while earning reasonable, non-extractive returns for its members. Consequently, Kachuwa’s investors tend to be people who are seeking private investment opportunities that prioritize social and environmental impact rather than the short-sighted, bottom-line focus for which Wall Street is known.
