Offering No-Interest Loans to Individuals & Families in Need | A Project to Serve the Ossining Community

Welcome to The Ossining Microfund

Welcome to The Ossining Microfund

The Ossining Micro Fund is a non-profit organization offering interest free loans to individuals and families who encounter unexpected financial obstacles. Our philosophy is to “pay it forward” – when a loan recipient repays a loan, the money becomes available to help another person in need.

About the Micro Fund

  • We are a 501 (C)3 non -profit.
  • We can make loans only up to $2000.
  • We are unable to lend for recurring monthly expenses.
  • We can respond faster than a traditional financial institution.
