Pre-Application Information:

Loan terms:
- This is a loan program; the proceeds of the funding source's investment are expected to be repaid in full.
- The maximum allowable investment will be 25% of 2019 revenues, with a cap of $50,000, and a minimum of $20,000.
- The PRI will require an interest rate of 2% annually, paid semi-annually, on the unpaid balance. Principal is required to be repaid in full at maturity.*
- Upon application acceptance, the CFO will make a program-related investment (PRI) in the applicant nonprofit for a period of up to four years. (i.e. Loans provided via this program will have a 4 year loan repayment timeframe.)

*This is a flexible investment, and you can make payments along the way, or repay in total at maturity. Interest payments are required semi-annually

This is an unsecured loan.

In the event that the loan recipient cannot pay the investment back, the CFO will work in every way to come up with a payment plan to help them repay the investment. The CFO expects the investment to be paid in full at maturity, but also knows there could be extenuating circumstances preventing repayment in full at maturity. Should the loan recipient be unable or unwilling to repay the investment, they will be ineligible for any further CFO grants for a period of five years.
