From child care to aquaculture to renewable energy to food production, CEI helped more people start, grow and enhance their businesses in 2022.

CEI works intentionally with entrepreneurs, small business owners, and individuals that traditional banking institutions have shut out and left behind. We integrate our finance, business expertise and policy solutions in ways to make the economy work more equitably.

As a nonprofit organization, your tax-deductible donation will help CEI meet the needs of those we serve, enabling them to build wealth, support their families, provide good jobs and contribute to the health and vibrancy of their community.

Please consider a donation to CEI this year as you plan your annual gifts. With you, we are building an economy that lifts all people.

On behalf of our team and the entrepreneurs, families and communities we serve, thank you.

CEI is a tax-exempt, nonprofit organization as described in Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. CEI’s tax identification number is EIN 01-0347504.
