There will be an orientation session on Wednesday, August 8 for nonprofits interested applying for loans through the Nonprofit Loan Fund. See details below.

The Community Foundation conducted a feasibility study in 2009 to determine the needs within the nonprofit sector. Through this study we discovered:
  • 50% of nonprofit organizations had a budget shortfall
  • 82% of these were due to timing (money was supposed to come in but didn’t)
  • 70% of nonprofit organizations indicated they may borrow if loans were available
  • 65% of nonprofit organizations do not have a vibrant, stable banking relationship
