New Survey Highlights the Significant Financing Challenges Faced by Non-profit Organizations and Social Impact Companies
AUSTIN, Texas - Aug. 19, 2015 - PRLog -- Startup Capital & Expansion Funding released the results of a new survey finding that non-profit organizations and social impact companies face significant challenges and hurdles in accessing the capital they need to grow.
The nationwide survey was conducted from July 6, 2015 to August 9, 2015. The survey was conducted by email across a cross section of 742 non-profit and social impact company executives. The survey found that:
· 67.7% of respondents with an opinion on the matter believe that financing their non-profit organization or social impact company is harder than financing a for-profit company
· 36.0% of respondents disagree that traditional lenders, such as banks and credit unions, understand their organization’
· 31.6% of respondents feel that bankers and finance professionals consider them and/or their organization less financially savvy than similarly-situated for-profit peer companies
Company Vice President, Brett Cenkus, commented, “The survey reveals the unfortunate challenges facing these important pillars of our communities. Non-profit organizations and social impact companies are integral contributors to our economy. And, they do a whole lot of good in our communities. As a society we need to continue to create financial products and solutions that allow these organizations to obtain the capital they need to prosper.”
