Capital Community Capital Community (formerly known as Austin Microfinance Group) is a 501(c)3 non-profit and UT organization that conducts basic personal finance lessons for individuals in underserved areas in Austin and holds informational events to increase awareness of predatory lending. We believe that the most effective way to ensure long-term financial responsibility is through education.

About Us and Our Mission

“As students at the University of Texas at Austin, we saw many families in our area were affected by predatory lending practices. We founded Capital Community to fight these practices through outreach, education, and activism to help families gain greater financial stability”
