Your gift grows and keeps giving!
Every $100 donated to Genesis becomes $1,000 to support projects that transform lives and communities.
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.
Thank you for your gift to Genesis.
“I love Genesis because no idea is too crazy when the need is real and the funding is possible!”
