Starbucks and ECDI?
December 8, 2011 § Leave a comment
What do Starbucks and ECDI have in common? We are both working with the Opportunity Finance Network to create jobs and lending opportunities for low-income, low-wealth, and other disadvantaged people and communities to join the economic mainstream.
Starbucks is selling wristbands for $5 at every location and one-hundred percent of the proceeds go to OFN to fund capital grants to local lenders like ECDI who fund small businesses. For every $5 that is donated, $35 dollars can be lent out from OFN, making the path towards helping small businesses grow into a much-needed expressway.
