As a non-profit we depend on donations to support our special programs, particularly technical assistance and co-op development to build the co-op ecosystem in BIPOC communities. While earned interest on loans covers most of our operations, we couldn’t do that work without our donors’ generous contributions.

Our Vision:

Economic justice for all through thriving cooperative enterprises.

Our Mission:

We work for economic, social, and racial justice by advancing community based, cooperative, and democratically owned or managed enterprises with a preference to assisting cooperatives in low-income communities by:

  • Providing financial products at reasonable rates
  • Developing business skills
  • Offering an investment opportunity that promotes socially conscious enterprise

Founded in 1975, CFNE is a certified Community Development Finance Institution (CDFI), and is also a tax exempt public charity under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
