Why Opportunity Fund
We believe everyone deserves the chance to succeed. That’s why, at Opportunity Fund, we invest in small business owners who don’t have access to traditional financial resources. They put the capital and financial advice we provide to good use, changing their lives for the better and strengthening their communities. This combination of entrepreneurship and financial stability are the pillars of our award-winning, innovative strategy proving over and over again that people can do great things, just given the chance.
Opportunity Fund invests in small businesses that have been shut out of the financial mainstream. As a founding member and signatory to the Small Business Borrower’s Bill of Rights, we believe in the important role small businesses play in our communities and the economy. Our mission is to help them succeed. Opportunity Fund is backed by investors including Bank of America, Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan Chase Foundation, Knight Foundation and the Calvert Foundation. We are one of the largest non-profit lenders to small businesses in the country. In fiscal year 2017, we made over $92.5M in loans to help more than 2,900 small business owners invest in their businesses.
