Small Change is launching a socially responsible Opportunity Zone offering that you can invest in.

Small Change combines three powerful concepts in its opportunity zone offerings:
- the new tax benefits available for investments in qualified opportunity zone funds
- the Small Change Index, our proprietary method for identifying projects that are socially responsible and benefit cities and communities, and
- the ability for anyone over the age of 18 to invest.
Opportunity Zones are economically-distressed communities where new investments may qualify for special tax treatment. There are 8,700 Opportunity Zones, 12% percent of U.S. census tracts, many of which already attract businesses and investments. A community must be certified by the federal government to qualify as an Opportunity Zone.
By investing in an Opportunity Zone business or building, investors can defer their existing capital gains tax liability. They can also reduce this liability by up to 15%. And completely eliminate tax on the appreciation in the Opportunity Zone investment itself.
Investors must invest in an Opportunity Zone Fund in order to reap the tax benefits of an Opportunity Zone. An Opportunity Zone Fund is a fund where at least 90% of the investments are in qualified opportunity zone assets.
No. You can invest in an Opportunity Zone Fund anywhere in the United States to take advantage of the tax benefits.
We’ll be launching some Small Change Opportunity Zone offerings in 2019. Sign up below to stay tuned.
