RSF supports organizations and initiatives committed to regenerating and preserving the earth’s ecosystems. Understanding that natural resources are the source of economic life, we seek those practicing integrated, systems-based, and culturally sensitive approaches to stewardship. We will consider supporting those projects and leaders who recognize and are working to reduce the gap between the seemingly endless demand for natural resources and the alarming stress already evident in ecosystems.
RSF provides mortgage loans, construction loans, equipment loans and lines of credit. Loans range from $200,000 to $5 million. Successful applicants to the Social Enterprise Lending Program will demonstrate the following:
- 3 or more years of operating history;
- Enterprise is profitable, or can demonstrate a clear path to profitability in 12 months;
- Annual revenue of $1 million or greater preferred.
Apply for a Loan
If you are interested in a loan and your social enterprise meets these criteria, please fill out our online loan application.
Once we have received and approved your pre-application, a Lending Program representative will contact you to determine a fit and, if appropriate, invite you to submit a full loan application. This will require additional documentation, which generally includes historical and projected financial statements, board officer and management resumes, and a narrative business plan.
