The California Municipal Finance Authority (“CMFA”) is a Joint Powers Authority created to strengthen local communities by assisting with the financing of economic development and charitable activities throughout the State of California. With the goal of giving back to California communities, the CMFA assists local governments, non-profits and businesses with the issuance of taxable and tax-exempt financing aimed at improving the quality of life in California. To date, over 200 municipalities have become members of CMFA. 

The CMFA is committed to promoting public benefit, economic and social programs in our member communities. To further its mission of supporting California municipalities, the CMFA donates to local non-profits 25% of its revenues generated from financing activities, such donations are made through the California Foundation for Stronger Communities (“CFSC”), the charitable foundation of the CMFA. 

The CMFA’s unique approach of granting its revenues to non-profits and municipalities enable the CMFA to double its mission impact: first, by facilitating the financing of qualified economic and community development projects that provide employment and other positive public benefits, and second, by supporting through charitable contributions the various community based, non-profit agencies that touch the lives of California residents.
