A Message From our President & CEO and Board Chair

What an incredible year!

All year long, more than 5,000 driven, diverse, and dedicated entrepreneurs came through our doors for consultation and education to grow their businesses. We provided over $32 million in opportunity capital to 1,100 entrepreneurs.

When we first ventured into mission-based lending in 1994, our focus was to remove barriers in accessing resources and capital while keeping integrity and humility of service in constant view. Today, our focus remains the same.

We have provided small businesses with over $300 million in capital for nearly a quarter century. Because of your belief and support, we were able to open more doors and level the financial playing field for thousands of entrepreneurs.

Since 1994, we have built a family of alumni, clients, donors, investors, and friends dedicated to economic equity and prosperity through entrepreneurship. As you know, celebrating milestones happens because of everyone being part of something bigger.

We hope you will sense this by our clients’ stories and through their pictures see their resiliency, despite barriers, they are achieving success through entrepreneurship. They know that WE are on their side.

Stories like these provide a glimpse of how your support allows LiftFund to level the financial playing field. We are beyond grateful for our 591 donors, 118 investors, 500 partners, 100 employees and 15 board members who champion our mission and vision.

Thank you for your support. We know, together, we are making a difference.
