Event description
The Saint John Community Loan Fund is celebrating its 20th anniversary. Come celebrate with us.

About this Event

The Saint John Community Loan Fund (Loan Fund) was created to improve social conditions by promoting economic independence and fostering entrepreneurship in our community. We help individuals and organizations create income, build assets, and attain greater self-reliance. Services include financing, training, coaching, savings, and affordable, quality commercial and residential spaces.

We have a lot to celebrate! We were the first and remain the only community loan fund in the Atlantic Region, the first to deliver financial literacy training and provide matched savings, and we built the first 'social enterprise hub' that provides a quality collaborative space for enterprising not for profits.

We have installed Saint John’s largest solar array on the Hub. We have renovated a vacant 2-unit building with the social enterprise construction company, Catapult. We are also designing and piloting Launch Social, the first NB capital pool dedicated to equity and equity like investing in social purpose organizations

Tickets are free. Donations are welcomed.

Doors open at 4:30 pm with festivities kicking off at 5pm. See you on Nov 21st.
