About Us

The primary goal of NPLF is to serve local nonprofit organizations that would not be eligible for conventional operational loans. By providing affordable loans to the organizations and groups that work to improve the lives of Southern Arizona residents, we expand the reach and effect that these organizations have on the people they serve. Our lending team understands the uniqueness of nonprofit organizations. Each loan is customized based on individual needs and our ultimate goal  is to help your organization qualify for a conventional bank loan in the future.

NPLF partners provide technical assistance in preparing your loan package, including BDFC Advisor Services, LLC, for loan servicing.



“NPLF has enabled IST to give the children of Tucson a rare opportunity to be multilingual, global citizens by providing financial assistance to the school. It’s reassuring to know a resource of this kind is available for organizations in town to turn to.”

-William Arthur, Headmaster of International School of Tucson

“We’re expecting a significant increase in revenues in 2014 due to investments we’ve made in creative new programming and staff. The loan from NPLF is a bridge to help us manage our cash flow while waiting for anticipated revenue.”

-Kelly Fryer, Executive Director of YWCA Tucson

“We were pleased with how accessible and responsive everyone was to our questions and how the whole process was so transparent. We appreciated the fact that a Loan Committee makes the final decisions and the loan closing paperwork– simple and straightforward.  The timing was perfect for Wingspan.”

-Carol Grimsby, Executive Director of Wingspan
