Backed by best-in-class partners such as the Robin Hood Foundation, BlackRock, Google, and Salesforce, C4Q creates pathways out of poverty. Our 10-month software training program raises graduates’ incomes from an average of $18,000 to $85,000 and serves an audience that is 50% women, 60% African American or Hispanic, 40% immigrant, and 55% without a college education. We have former cab drivers and retail associates now working as software engineers at leading companies such as Pinterest, Kickstarter, and Uber.

Scalable Impact

C4Q has structured and raised a new investment vehicle: the ‘18-85 Job Outcomes Bond (JOB).’ Impact investors provide capital and receive a financial return based on whether we effectively deliver training and job outcomes for our participants. We believe that the ‘18-85 Job Outcomes Bond’ has the potential to become a national model that other non-profits can adopt – to improve sustainability, access new pools of capital, and, most importantly, rigorously demonstrate the delivery of outcomes.
