- Cooperative Fund of New England (CFNE)
- The Cooperative Fund of New England (CFNE) was founded in 1975 and has been lending to cooperatives of all kinds since then. It is a community development loan fund that is a bridge between socially responsible investors and cooperatives, community-oriented non-profits, and worker-owned businesses in New England (and parts of New York). CFNE advances community-based, cooperative, and democratically owned or managed enterprises with preference to those that serve low income communities through the provision of prompt financial assistance at reasonable rates; the provision of an investment op¬portunity that promotes socially responsible enterprise; and the development of a regional reservoir of business skills with which to assist and advise the above groups. In 35 years CFNE has made more than 554 loans to community based groups, creating and/or retaining jobs and housing units.
