D2D Fund is now Commonwealth

We have spent more than a year reflecting on our first 15 years and thinking deeply about the future - all to realize our fundamental purpose for the next 15 years, to create a stronger and more prosperous society where everyone has financial opportunity.
Unfortunately, too many people in the U.S. today lack financial stability. For people to pursue their full potential, we need more wealth - of opportunity, of tools, of financial assets - and we need that wealth to be more widespread.

We aspire to accomplish that by building innovative solutions that make people financially secure. We collaborate with consumers, the financial services industry, policy makers, and mission-driven organizations to discover ideas, pilot solutions, and drive innovations to scale so wealth can become possible for everyone.
