The Washing Well – Lower Price Hill


Whether you need a new building or a new boiler, CDF’s loans help nonprofits of all sizes throughout Greater Cincinnati, Northern Kentucky, and Dayton, Ohio, make big-impact investments.

We are experts in structuring efficient and effective financing for nonprofits. Our loan officers listen and work with you to find a solution for your organization.

At CDF, we know even a small loan can make a big difference. So we make it easy—no long forms, unnecessary fees or complicated approval processes. Ranging from $50,000 to $1.5 million or more, our low-cost, 15-year loans can cover up to 95 percent of a project’s total cost. We also provide second-position loans and financing for leasehold improvements. Our flyer provides an overview of our nonprofit facilities and equipment lending products.
