Grant, award, and loan programs to create social and economic impact
Many nonprofits, small businesses, and collaboratives lack the financial capital necessary to ignite, launch, and grow their impact: especially those who are led by – or serve – marginalized communities. To make funding more accessible, New Sun Rising administers the Vibrancy Funds: an integrated capital program which provides grants, loans, awards, equity, credit enhancement, and technical assistance. Since 2009, NSR has invested over $9 million to help people make progress towards the Sustainable Development Goals. Learn more about our underwriting framework and history of investment below.
