For 25 years, The Loan Fund has been one of the primary sources of affordable credit that New Mexico’s nonprofits have relied on to grow and operate their business. This workshop will be led by The Loan Fund’s senior loan officers Norma Valdez and Cathy Sorenson who will provide an in depth look at how they evaluate the financial strength of a nonprofit, and when a loan might be an appropriate source of funding for the nonprofit. The workshop will include examples of the financial structures of some the many nonprofits that The Loan Fund has helped. Open to anyone, this session may be particularly useful for Chief Financial Officers, Finance Directors, and Board Treasurers.
