We are proud to announce that Bankable has received a $25,000 grant from the Fifth Third Foundation’s Strengthening Our Communities Fund to support the growth of loan program capacity.

Bankable partners with Fifth Third and other organizations to offer Indiana small businesses who are not able to receive traditional financing, access to affordable business loans as well as quality business assistance programs in an effort to help them become “bankable”. The grant from the Fifth Third Foundation will enable the Bankable team to expand capacity and offer higher quality technical assistance to small businesses throughout Indiana.  In addition to providing this grant, Fifth Third serves as a strong referral partner by connecting businesses to Bankable for loan funding.

“We are honored and grateful to have been selected by the Fifth Third Foundation to be a recipient of this grant,” says Bankable Executive Director, Adam Hoeksema, “Fifth Third is committed to strengthening the Indiana community through partnership and this grant will enable us to further carry out our mission in doing that by supporting more small businesses.”
