Nonprofit Lending

GPAz is a U.S. Treasury-certified CDFI (Community Development Financial Institution) that provides loans and technical assistance to small businesses and nonprofits in Arizona. By offering personalized guidance and support, GPAz equips organizations with the tools needed to thrive and grow, promoting economic stability and social welfare.

Nonprofit financing plays a crucial role in supporting the mission and operations of nonprofit organizations. These funds are essential for specific projects or programs that help these organizations achieve their goals and fulfill their organization’s mission. Nonprofits often rely on donations from various sources, such as individuals, foundations, corporations, and government agencies, to finance their activities. By leveraging nonprofit financing effectively, these organizations can improve their efficiency and positively impact communities while also improving lives.
