Our Partners and Funders

The following companies and organizations recognize the significant impact of providing refugees, immigrants and low-income individuals with access to the financing and tools required to start their own small business.

Their support provides EDG with the opportunity to continue to increase awareness of this important issue, and to raise much needed funds to further our mission: to promote opportunities for self-sufficiency to low-to moderate-income people through sustainable economic and community development initiatives.
