The Truss Fund’s capital comes from individuals, donor advised funds and private foundations that invest via recoverable grants and grants. At this time we are making loans exclusively to graduates of the GSBI® Accelerator at Miller Center.
Investors who commit over $10,000 to the Truss Fund can participate via a recoverable grant. Their investment will be returned after three years less a pro rata share of any loan losses and less a 2% per annum management fee.
Investors who commit less than $10,000 to the Truss Fund can participate via a donation to Miller Center with a notation that the gift should be used for the Truss Fund. Your donation will be pooled with others and invested in the Truss Fund. At the end of the three years, your gift (less any losses and fees) will be returned to Miller Center for their general operations.
If you want to offer emergency loan support to social enterprises that are addressing poverty or protecting the planet but aren’t graduates of the GSBI® Accelerator, we still want to hear from you. We hope to expand our reach soon and your interest will inform our expansion.
