New Loan Closing: Athletics and Beyond
Building opportunities for young people in Denver
The mission of Athletics and Beyond is to create opportunities through exposure; the organization provides tutoring for student athletes, athletic programs, and supplemental education for adults in the workforce. In addition, Athletics and Beyond is deeply involved in community service, outreach, and beautification. NFF offered Athletics and Beyond a $100,000 working capital loan through the Metro Denver Nonprofit Loan Fund, a collaboration between NFF, Community First Foundation, Rose Community Foundation, and The Denver Foundation designed to counter historic disparities in access to capital while financially supporting the Greater Denver region’s nonprofit ecosystem. Athletics and Beyond will leverage this loan to move towards achieving its five-year goal of serving 10,000 individuals annually, up from 3,000 today, by moving into its first gym facility. This space will serve as a community hub for the Green Valley Ranch, Montbello and Northfield neighborhoods of Denver.
