Since its inception in 1997, The Progress Fund has made 503 loans totaling more than $66.8 Million to 307 small businesses helping to create or sustain over 3,827 jobs. The Progress Fund has also provided more than 20,335 hours of entrepreneurial coaching and helped rehabilitate over 125 historically significant buildings which have been focal points for community redevelopment efforts.

We’ve backed adaptive reuse of historic structures like Kentuck Knob, a Frank Lloyd Wright designed home turned into a private museum. And consider the manufacturing jobs created when American Mug & Stein Co. won a huge order opportunity from Starbucks Coffee, thanks in part to The Progress Fund.

The Progress Fund is an equal opportunity provider and employer.
