A long-awaited loan platform
The Resilience Fund is innovating to meet small business owners’ urgent and diverse lending needs. It is an institution missing in this community for years, which provides flexible terms, supports community-wide economic recovery, and lowers costs to borrowers.

Lending alongside hundreds of others is one of the most powerful and sustainable ways to create lasting economic and social good in your community. Lending to your neighbors creates a partnership of mutual dignity, shared prosperity and tangible good.
Lift one to lift many
When you enable a local business to grow and create opportunity for themselves, it creates opportunities for others as well. That ripple effect can improve the future for one family, or our entire community.
