Does your nonprofit need cash now?
Would an affordable loan meet your needs?

The Nonprofit Loan Fund of Tucson and Southern Arizona (NPLF) strengthens the financial capacity of Southern Arizona nonprofits through affordable and flexible loan financing and financial education for boards and staff.

Currently, the Nonprofit Loan Fund of Tucson and Southern Arizona (NPLF) provides affordable, operating loans to nonprofits in Pima, Cochise and Santa Cruz counties. NPLF bridges cash flow gaps and supports program expansion while agencies await:

  • Donations
  • Membership/subscription fees
  • Conclusion of a major fundraising campaign
  • Grants
  • Other reimbursements

In 2017, The U.S. Department of the Treasury recognized NPLF as a Certified Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI). With this certification, NPLF joins more than 500 nonprofit CDFI loan funds across the country committed to providing affordable financing to promote economic and community development in underserved and distressed communities.
