Seeking funding for capital projects related to not-for-profit, social enterprise or artist spaces?
There is a vast a continuum of funding need and opportunity when it comes to supporting space--from renovations to acquisition, feasibility studies to long term facility maintenance and repair. Funding might be available in the form of grants, or loan financing. Whatever your need, it is worth the time to speak with your prospective funder to understand their priorties, and to tap into their knowledge of what program, fund or financing might work best for you.
What follows is a listing of funding/financing programs that support not-for-profit and social enterprise space. Although SPRE itself is not a funder, many of the SPRE members are. You will find links to their programs and many others below. This is an evolving list, so if you know of a program that would be good to link to this page, let us know at SPRE.firstname.lastname@example.org.
