Kalamazoo Community Foundation (KZCF) is inviting area organizations and businesses seeking to expand high impact community efforts in Kalamazoo to apply for Impact Investment Loans. These loans are a special financing option for projects that support community growth in three goal areas: increasing housing equity, creating an inclusive economy, and developing nonprofit infrastructure. Impact Investment Loans from KZCF offer recipients an alternative to traditional lending sources, with low-interest rates based on the Consumer Price Index plus one percent. This often places the loans below market rates, with the added advantages of flexible loan terms and a streamlined 2-page application process. The Community Foundation’s Impact Investment Committee will review applications four times a year using a Racial Equity Impact Assessment Guide to ensure alignment with investment priorities. Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis. Learn more and apply at the Kalamazoo Community Foundation’s website.
