Support Our Mission

Donate to Support Small Businesses

Impacted by the COVID-19 Pandemic 

While the COVID-19 pandemic poses an immediate threat to our health, it has the potential to decimate our small business community and impact our economy for many years to come. “Main Street” businesses in our local communities will be crippled and the capital-starved small businesses in our most resource-poor communities are facing the threat of extinction. We need your help to expand our capacity to help more businesses.


If we don’t act today, tomorrow will not be an option for the vast majority of the small businesses that make our communities great. Your donation will help make this work possible.

IFEL is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Donations are tax-deductible to the full extent of the law. Consult your tax advisor.
