Line of Credit Benefit
A line of credit from a nonprofit endowment is a financial resource offered by community foundations like Colorado Gives Foundation. It enables nonprofit organizations to borrow money from their existing endowment fund without having to liquidate assets or dip into their reserves.
This financial tool allows nonprofits to access the funds they need to cover immediate expenses, address unexpected challenges, or seize new opportunities without disrupting their long-term financial stability. It’s also a cost-effective way to secure short-term financing, as the interest rates on endowment lines of credit are often lower than traditional bank loans.
At Colorado Gives Foundation, we work closely with our nonprofit partners to understand their needs and help them navigate the line of credit application process. Our goal is to support the success of our local nonprofit community by providing flexible and accessible financial solutions
