Every $100 donated to Genesis becomes $1,000 to transform lives and communities. Scroll down to make your gift.

Genesis grows your donation, as a Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI).

  • First, we “match” your gift with our funding from the CDFI Fund of the U.S. Treasury.
  • Then we attract new capital from institutions and individuals, using best-practice ratios.
  • What’s the final math? Your original gift of $100 leverages $900.

And the gift you make literally keeps on giving!

  • As our borrowers repay their loans, funds become available again to “revolve” into new project loans.
  • Your donation also supports low- and no-cost project guidance from Genesis.
  • That's how your gift continues to help our community partners expand affordable housing, healthcare, childcare, food security, and more.

Your donation is tax-deductible to the fullest extent of the law, because Genesis is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit.

We welcome gifts of stock and securities. For further information, please contact us by email. We appreciate your generous support! 

Thank you for your gift to Genesis.
