We strengthen the financial capacity of nonprofits through affordable and flexible operational loans and provides business guidance for staff and boards of directors.

Growth Partners Arizona (GPAz) loan experts work one-on-one with your organization to customize a loan package based on your organization’s needs. We make the process as easy as possible and ensure that you are involved every step of the way.

Growth Partners Arizona helps your organization develop effective financial practices so you can devote more time to the people and communities you serve. When you borrow from GPAz and pay the loan back on time, you improve the credit history of your nonprofit, making it easier in the future to borrow from a bank. And, you “pay it forward” by making loan funds available for other organizations.

Growth Partners Arizona supports 1) program expansion, 2) social enterprises, and 3) cash flow gaps while nonprofits await, for example: donations, membership/subscription fees, conclusion of major fundraising campaign, grants or other reimbursements.
