Give it Forward: 500 Ways To Improve Your Loan-to-Give Ratio

We know that you have choices when it comes to working with certified development companies on SBA 504 loans. Your partnership with us has helped SPEDCO become one of the most trusted CDCs in the region.

That’s why we established the SPEDCO Give It Forward program. When you work with us, SPEDCO will make a $500 donation in your name to your choice of one of 37 local economic development organizations for every SBA 504 loan that is approved by the SBA in 2017. Since the program’s inception in 2013 more than 52 projects sponsored by 35 different banks have qualified for this grant program to charities that specialize in economic development. It’s our way to thank you and to keep our communities strong. In fact, SPEDCO has donated more than $1,130,000 to charitable organizations since 2007 – a practice that distinguishes us from most other certified development companies.

To get started, review the program rules.

Let us honor your hard work with a gift to an organization you care about. And improve your loan-to-give ratio in a big way!
