The Mission of LiftFund
To provide credit and services to small businesses and entrepreneurs who do not have access to loans from commercial sources and to provide leadership and innovation to the microlending industry.
LiftFund is a designated community development financial institution, or CDFI. CDFI’s are working in communities across the United States to provide affordable, responsible credit, create and sustain jobs, and to stabilize communities. CDFI loans finance community businesses, including small businesses, microenterprises, nonprofit organizations, commercial real estate, and affordable housing.
We have the highest rating (four stars) awarded by Charity Navigator, an online charity evaluation database, and we are a member of the Opportunity Finance Network and Association for Enterprise Opportunity.
In addition, LiftFund is a regionally recognized U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) 504 CDC (Community Development Corporation) and is a designated 7A Community Advantage lender with the SBA.
