Help us light the way.

Your generous support and belief in our mission helps Carolina Small Business Development Fund provide capital, technical assistance, and policy research to light the way for underserved small businesses in North Carolina. 

If you would like to make a donation by personal check or ACH, please click here.

Your donation will help small business owners' dreams come true. Your generous support enables Carolina Small Business Development Fund to help effective and self-sustaining small businesses that have systemically lacked access to funding – particularly those owned by women, African Americans, Hispanics, Native Americans, and other minorities. With access to these funds, these under-served groups can expand their businesses, grow their incomes, and improve the lives of family members, employees, and neighbors in profound ways: higher employment, lower poverty rate, access to higher education and overall improvement of community and state. We will acknowledge your generous donation by sending you a letter for tax purposes.

Our volunteers contribute in a variety of ways, including one-on-one counseling and via providing subject matter expertise. If you don't have an interest in direct client interaction, but want to volunteer with our staff in other ways, those opportunities are also available.

Our sponsors and investors help us create a path towards sustainability and a stronger economy. Thanks to them, we have been able to provide access to capital to small businesses in underserved communities and continue to make an impact statewide.
