Community Loan Fund – How We Do It

Concerned individuals and institutions put their principles into practice and invest in the Community Loan Fund. Their investments and donations provide the necessary capital for our community and economic development activities. The Community Loan Fund’s growing number of investors – over 450 individuals, faith-based institutions, unions, foundations, banks, and other business and civic groups – collect interest on their investments and enjoy a 100% repayment rate.

Join our partnership. When you invest in the Community Loan Fund of the Capital Region, we use that money to make low-interest loans that support community and economic development. Your money will help launch new businesses and revitalize communities.
