Financing for Businesses and Nonprofits
With nearly 40 years of lending history, we know that finding a source of capital can be a major challenge for small businesses and nonprofits. The business owners and nonprofit leaders we serve sometimes lack the collateral, credit score, or equity contribution that traditional financing options typically require—and that's okay. We work closely with our borrowers to make sure they are set up for success. For borrower who are not quite ready for a loan, we can share our network of free business resources to help them lay the groundwork for their project.
We lend to small and large businesses as they grow. We also lend to institutions that help communities thrive, such as nonprofits, child cares, sustainable food businesses, faith-based organizations and more. Our small business and nonprofit borrowers come in all shapes and sizes, often with unconventional business models.
In all, we've provided $1.5 billion to businesses and nonprofits, helping our borrowers maintain and create more than 46,900 jobs.
