Invest in The Future of Our Community
Your investment directly supports our mission to promote affordable access to capital and knowledge for undervalued and underserved populations. Economic opportunity regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, income or geography should be accessible for all business owners and new entrepreneurs.
ACCESS Community Capital seeks to increase economic self-sufficiency by providing needed credit and financial counseling services to small businesses. Our mission is served by bringing innovative financial products and services to small businesses efficiently utilizing technology partners in underwriting and servicing, coupled with hands on character assessment and financial analysis.
Many small business owners do not have adequate access to conventional business loans through banks or other financial institutions, or get lost in the underwriting process, only to be denied without substantive reason or a complete understanding of the business. The alternative lending market has exploded over the past few years, fueled by hedge fund and private investor interest to fill the financing gap in the market. With no other avenues available, many small businesses turn to these alternative financing sources as a last resort. But many of these products are extremely expensive, predatory, unregulated, and have been driven by profit maximization and not a balance of risk-adjusted returns with a consideration of what’s best for the success of businesses.
Your investment helps us maintain loan funds and provide technical assistance to small business owners. By becoming an investor, ACCESS is able to provide more capital to more entrepreneurs who are building financial independence, generating wealth, and supporting their communities.
Investments can be made in a variety of ways. Whether support is received through grants, low interest financing, and/or other vehicles, proceeds will expand our work to create equity, reduce the racial wealth gap, promote inclusive growth, and build healthy communities through flexible financing and technical assistance programs.
Thanks so much for being a partner. Your support is truly a gift that is making a lasting impact for so many! Contact us at Partner@accesscommunitycapital.org to learn more.
