About the Job
In communities across the country, social challenges persist while resources remain stagnant or may decline. Today, more than ever, governments must find ways to smartly spend scarce dollars. Outcomes financing-sometimes called Pay For Success-has emerged as a promising way for local governments to fund what works and improve outcomes for disadvantaged communities. The Community Outcomes Fund invests in these next generation public-private partnerships that leverage private dollars to fund the delivery of high-impact services, where investors are repaid with a return based on the program achieving agreed upon outcomes. At the local level, the Fund's investments are driving dollars into evidence-based services that measurably improve economic, social, educational, and health outcomes in low-income communities. Nationally, the Fund's investments facilitate a meaningful shift in public policy to align funding with community outcomes

About Maycomb Capital
Maycomb Capital is a pioneering impact investing platform. We provide financing across asset classes to fund strategies and enterprises that transform communities. At Maycomb, we know that the world’s problems demand patience, creativity and an appreciation for complexity. We drive capital toward effective solutions for underserved communities, using data and rigorous analysis to guide our decisions. We identify scalable and sustainable paths to positive change, tackling entrenched social and economic challenges. By harnessing the scale, expertise and risk tolerance of the private sector in service of the public good, we’re demonstrating what’s possible with mission-focused, flexible capital.
Our flagship funds transform underserved communities in two different – but complementary – ways:
- The Community Outcomes Fund (TCOF) provides outcomes financing (also known as pay-for-success) that matches private capital with local priorities, realigning government programs with proven solutions to social challenges
- The Social Entrepreneurs Fund (TSEF) makes early-stage equity investments in the most promising entrepreneurs, upending traditional business models to create sustainable change.
We’re named for Maycomb County, the setting of Harper Lee’s classic novel To Kill a Mockingbird. Lee used Maycomb, a fictional district in Depression-era Alabama, as a backdrop for her universal story of the pursuit of justice. Her story sparked conversations about equity that still resonate today. Maycomb seeks to continue this dialogue, bringing innovative ideas to light through action.
