Support our services: free to low-cost classes, free business coaching, and access to capital. Over 25% of our budget is funded by donors and companies like you!
99% of our small business loans are to “traditionally unbankable” entrepreneurs. We specialize in working with entrepreneurs and small business owners from all walks of life, helping them become loan ready and able to access capital. Your referral to a small business owner in need of support can help them receive resources that they need.
Support our businesses and your local community in person: Shop Local from a collection of our client business success stories. Check out our Small Business Directory (plus online retailers, too)!
Invest in your community by aligning with economic development for communities of color, women, veterans, LGBTQ+, and immigrant/refugees. Receive recognition while supporting our accessible services, including events, classes, programs, and more.
With guaranteed returns on your investment, feel good about where your dollars are going. We manage investor funds with guaranteed returns to provide loans to small business owners in Washington and Oregon from $5,000 to $350,000; your investment of $100,000 to $1,000,000 lets you and the businesses you support thrive.
Your time teaching a class, serving on a board or committee, or supporting our events and administrative work helps our businesses thrive and lets us put our limited dollars to other use.
Each year we have a limited number of internship opportunities in a range of areas open to students and community members. Being an intern with Business Impact NW gives you a unique opportunity to earn course credit while gaining valuable business skills and supporting a non-profit organization.
