The Alliance is Now Accepting RFPs for 3 Positions

Request for Proposal: Loan Navigator Workshop Initiative – Subject Matter Expert

  • Small and medium nonprofits continue to face challenges in obtaining working capital at competitive rates from traditional lending institutions.  Covid-19, and the unsuccessful attempts by nonprofits to secure loans such as PPE and EIDL, have made these challenges even more apparent.
  • The inability of these nonprofits to obtain needed funds is likely a combination of 1) lack of basic knowledge concerning the ability to monetize receivables and have a strategic understanding of debt, 2) lack of visibility into the lending institution decision making processes, 3) failure to build relationships with financial institutions in advance of critical funding needs.
  • A broad coalition of Arizona-based funders have granted funding to the Alliance to address the “lending gap” through a dedicated workshop series and retention of a dedicated resource to provide guidance to nonprofits on lending-related activities.
  •  The Alliance is seeking an individual or group of individuals who would be interested in one or more of the phases of work.  Submissions may be for Phase I only, Phase II and III only, or for all three Phases combined.  Submissions must make clear for which Phases the proposal is being submitted.
