Earlier this year, ONAC was selected as one of 25 funds across the United States that are focused on integrated capital (Transformative 25, https://iciaptos.com/the-transformative-25/). ONAC is grateful for inclusion in this annual list of funds.
Last year, ONAC received a generous anonymous $1,000,000 donation. As a nationally-focused Native-led nonprofit, we continue to administer seven Native asset-building programs. Soon, by leveraging a portion of the anonymous donation, we will also launch a revolving loan fund that we are calling the ONAC Fund. ONAC plans to start small and offer loans to participants in the ONAC financial coaching program who have expressed a need for capital.
We invite you to participate in a webinar on August 30th where ONAC will speak more about how we plan to connect borrowers to the other wrap-around asset-building programs we currently administer (such as seed-funded Children's Savings Accounts and emergency savings accounts, Native-specific financial education, connections to Native VITA programs, down payment assistance, banking access, free financial coaching, etc.).To learn more about several of the Native-led funds in this Transformative 25 cohort (including ONAC's Fund), please see the webinar registration information below. We hope you will join us!
