In 2021, the fund was the winner in the Societal and Community Impact Innovation category of the Banking Administration Institute (BAI) Global Innovation Awards.
With the demonstrated success of the Woodforest CEI-Boulos Opportunity Fund, CEI-Boulos has since launched two more funds in 2022 with NBT Bank and Allivate Impact Capital.
