We’re a nonprofit that provides interest-free loans to help Jewish individuals in Northern California overcome financial challenges and pursue life dreams.
Some of our loans are also available to non-Jewish residents of Northern California who fall into one of the following categories:
- Student from a lower income home who is referred by a partner program (click here to learn more)
- Employee of a Jewish organization
- Business partner or immediate family member of a Jewish individual
As loans are repaid, funds are recycled to make new loans. We’ve proven the success of this model with a repayment rate over 99.5%.
