About ACCESS Community Capital Fund

ACCESS Community Capital Fund is a non-profit organization dedicated to fostering inclusive economies by providing access to financial resources and support.

ACCESS began as a community initiative in 1999 to support struggling small business owners. Over our 24-year history as a micro-lending organization, we’ve learned firsthand that our lending to elevate communities required added support in order to make a lasting impact on our Clients’ lives.

As a result, ACCESS developed wraparound support services through coaching, mentoring, and educational workshops for loan recipients and other aspiring entrepreneurs. Now, ACCESS provides a full suite of programs designed to nourish and support aspiring entrepreneurs, help build confidence, and provide clients access to the resources and skills needed to kickstart their future.

Our Mission:

ACCESS creates economic opportunities by removing barriers to entrepreneurship through financing, education, and mentorship.

Our Vision:

ACCESS is committed to building a society where everyone has access to the resources they need to achieve their financial and entrepreneurial goals.
