Northern California Grantmakers is pleased to announce the release of new loan opportunities for Bay Area arts nonprofits. We have launched a new website with more user-friendly loan applications in order to support organizations like yours.
Last year the Arts Loan Fund (ALF) embarked on a journey to better serve the needs of the arts community. For more than 30 years, the ALF has provided short-term financial assistance to nonprofit arts organizations who face periodic cash-flow gaps.
We learned that despite thirty years of loans and continuing cash-flow struggles for arts organizations, the ALF is not widely known in the arts community, and its website and applications needed a major face-lift.
In response, the ALF launched a new website, switched to a user-friendly application platform, created three new loan products, and opened two social media spaces. Follow us on Twitter and we will follow you right back. Like us on Facebook for new resources and funding opportunities!
The new website and loan products were designed and created to be accessible resources to support organizations like yours, we’re eager to hear your feedback. Let us know how it’s working for you!
The next application deadline is April 24, 2017. Please let us know if you have any questions or would like more information about the application process.
All the best,
Coordinator, Collaborative Philanthropy
