Providing small loans to green entrepreneurs who put our natural resources to work responsibly.

General Overview

Established by The Conservation Fund and the U.S. Endowment for Forestry and Communities, with a lead grant from Mercedes-Benz USA, ShadeFund provides small loans to green entrepreneurs across America. ShadeFund pools tax-deductible contributions from individuals, foundations and companies and then lends those donations to qualified business applicants. As entrepreneurs repay their loans, those same dollars are recycled to help other entrepreneurs grow. Loans range from $2,500 to $50,000.
