Revolving Loan Fund Campaign
Expanding local sources of flexible financing is vital to ensuring people in our community have access to the financial tools they need to meet challenges and take advantage of opportunities created by the pandemic. With your support, we can provide businesses with the resources to reverse decreased sales or meet the new demands of skyrocketing sales. We can help those with a job loss develop an idea for a business or help an existing business incubate a great new opportunity. Through the generous support of the community, we have raised over $160,000 toward our goal of $250,000. All sizes of gifts are welcome.Support the Loan Fund!
