Help us promote vibrant communities through the support and financing of small businesses.

Accion Opportunity Fund invests in the resilience of small business owners, who transform individual lives and entire communities. With your support, we ensure that small business owners — particularly those who are people of color, women, and immigrants — can access fair and affordable capital, networks, and coaching. Your gift helps their businesses, their families, and our neighborhoods thrive.

To support small businesses affected by COVID-19, visit our Small Business Relief Fund page.

 

 

 

Why we do what we do

Small business owners uplift communities and anchor local economies, but they’re often shut out from traditional financing.

  • 8,000 small business loans are denied every day

    Traditional financing options don’t help small business owners when they need help most

  • 38% of loan applications from Black-owned businesses are denied

    Compared with 20% of White-owned businesses that apply for financing

  • $1.5 trillion will be added to the U.S. economy by 2028

    Closing the racial wealth gap would contribute to a thriving U.S. economy
