Did you know 501cs are NOT eligible for many Federal Grants? According to the SBA, 501cs are NOT eligible for MOST of their Technical Assistance Programs, cannot directly apply for Small Business Lending Opportunities, Hub Zone offerings or pursue Small Business Certifications?

REALLY! Its the “Small Business Administration! – from SBAs website.

Did you know bank loans for 501c startups are denied 9 out of 10 times? Private Study.

Did you 501c are excluded from Grants & Grant competitions offered by regular for-profit Business, common initiatives’ including those from the US Chamber of Commerce, State level programs, EVEN OTHER 501cs. Private Study.

So instead of insisting we b included, we’ve been creating our own initiatives. Check out our 501cLegUp & Academic Partnership as an example of what we’ve come up with.

The 501c Business Incubator Counciland later its lead charity EEF-501c™ began as volunteer work helping startups, mostly tax-exempt startups. As a Solopreneur the contrast between what was available as a for profit business vs. what was unavailable, restricted to the same person a 501c insulted the intelligence. We are doing the exact same work so WHY was and does there continue to be a difference in available resource or asset assistance when for profit & tax-exempts are both are legal business concerns.

Not only do we experience this first-hand we continued to learn from peers, stakeholders, former Awardees, clients, & others of the same blockages happening as time passes on.

So 501cBizIncCncl™ has spent the last several years elevating is charitable programs and services into legally recognized charitable entities to serve the Tax-Exempt Business Entity (TEBE)™. Chartering our own national Federal Credit Union is a key part of our support infrastructure going well beyond the small dollar lending we’ve done to date. Guaranteeing we as 501cs ALWAYS have banking services that cater to our unique needs as a legal business concern that just happens to be a tax-exempt means we can move-n-groove as WE see fit, when we see fit, no barriers, no exclusions, with no problems — ever!

Letter of Support (LOS) are encouraged by the National Credit Union Association (NCUA). NCUA is the Chartering body that forms, governs, and regulates Federal Credit Unions.

A profound Thank-You is extended to Eliana’s Light and several others who have already offered Letters of Support (LOS). We included them with our Pre-Charter Application and we will continue include new ones to add to our portfolio for NCUA to record in support of our 501cFCU™ Charter.

If you would like to contribute, we are accepting letters supporting establishing a dedicated business banking institution for 501c’s as well as Promissory Commitment Letters (PCL) promising a commitment of funds to help with the FCUs pre-launch obligations/activities and its post launch operations, email your Correspondence to ISupport@501cFCU.org or snail mail it to the Incubator & Foundation at:
