The Vermont Community Loan Fund creates opportunities that lead to healthy
communities and financial stability for all Vermonters. We make loans
to local businesses, community organizations & nonprofits, child
care providers and developers of affordable housing who don't qualify
for a loan from a traditional lender. Our capital comes from the
community: individuals & families, corporations, state &
federal governments, foundations, financial institutions, faith-based
groups and others who want to align their impact investments with their
values and their geography, earning them a social or
"community" return along with their financial
return. Since our inception we've lent $100 million to local
businesses, affordable housing developers and community-based
organizations that has created or preserved over 5,600 jobs; built or
rehabilitated more than 4,000 affordable homes for Vermont's families,
individuals and seniors; created or preserved quality care for
over 3,800 children and their families and supported community
organizations providing vital services to hundreds of thousands of
Milk Money, powered by VSECU, is Vermont's first portal for
local crowdinvesting, allowing Vermonters to directly invest in Vermont
companies. Not Wall Street. Not Kickstarter. This is directly investing
in local businesses to build a stronger local economy. Milk Money's
mission is to put the means for growing a business, a strong local
economy and personal wealth within the reach of all Vermonters. www.milkmoneyvt.com
