CHiFA accelerates its launch by leveraging FJC's lending infrastructure

The Cultural Heritage Finance Alliance (CHiFA) invests in cultural heritage sites around the world, raising loan capital from foundations and other mission-lenders. To enable this new organization to remain lean and focused on mission, FJC brings its scaled operational platform to deliver back office support and ancillary services, including servicing for its international project loan fund.

Cash Flow Solutions

Work with your major donors to develop a revolving resource to lend against cash flow receiveables.

Use Your Donors' Philanthropic Capital as Your Line of Credit
How it works
  • Similar to a Donor Advised Fund (DAF) account, but set up to allow donors to deploy the capital in the account as loans to the designated organization.
  • Loans may be drawn to bridge documented grant commitment or contract receivable from a public or private source, with a minimum interest rate of 1% per annum.
  • Funds in the account may revolve as loans indefinitely.
  • Loans may be written off and converted to a grant at any time at the discretion of the donors.
Notice for Grantseekers

FJC is not able to accept unsolicited proposals for grant support, because our grantmaking is responsive to our donors’ recommendations.
