Often we talk about the Loan Fund's work in terms of dollars lent.  Dollars and cents don't give a face to the human element in our work and the effect that community investing has on our neighbors and in our hearts.

VCLF Executive Director

Impact, Sustainability, Justice...OPPORTUNITY

The Vermont Community Loan Fund creates opportunities that lead to healthy communities and financial stability for all Vermonters.

VCLF is a mission-driven, community-focused alternative lender. 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. We combine our loans with financial consulting and business development services to make sure our borrowers have access to everything they need to succeed.
