WHat is the stone table?

How We Started

Our Story in a Nutshell

In 1992, a retiring pastor and some savvy entrepreneurs recognized an emerging opportunity in the affordable housing business. They launched Community Reinvestment Foundation, a nonprofit aimed at creating and sustaining high-quality low-income housing for people who need it, with half the business profits designated for underwriting global missions projects. Through years of hard work, their idea began to flourish more than any of them ever imagined.

Until 2015, all the company’s charitable investment was handled by ActioNow, the missions fundraising organization pioneered by one of CRF’s founding board members. The Stone Table was launched as the 21st-century renewal of that original vision, leveraging business to create sustainable revenue for global missions work while serving the Church in the arena of faith and work.
