Accessible and affordable impact-based financing

Mission Driven Finance helps nonprofits, social enterprises, and businesses grow with accessible and affordable impact-based financing. We fund and leverage capital to advance economic opportunity and empower communities.

Our Lending Focus

Through our flagship Advance strategy, we make commercial loans* of $100,000 to $500,000 to tenacious small businesses and nonprofits in San Diego that are committed to advancing economic opportunity, but find themselves in a capital gap. We look for “tweens“—businesses that don’t fit SBA, microloan, or bank criteria—where our investment will be the tipping point enabling a project to succeed. Interested in learning more? Here are five things to know about getting an impact-based loan.

*Mission Driven Finance also offers transactions structured in accordance with Islamic financing principles.

"The process of working with Mission Driven Finance gave us a chance to look at every component of the business so we can be in the strongest position to serve our students.”
