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. For a preview of what these wristbands look like and more information, click here.

The next time you stop by your local Starbucks, be sure to purchase the wristband not only to donate but also to show your support for local small businesses.
