We get capital to people on their terms by lending based on relationships and trust

Community Credit Lab is a nonprofit 501(c)3 with EIN 84-1899948 based in Seattle, WA. Our work officially began in October 2019.


We exist to remove barriers by using credit as a tool to support people in the Puget Sound area. We believe that changing the financial system to prioritize humanity will lead to a more equitable, just society where everyone in our community can thrive.


Our affordable community lending programs are funded by philanthropy and impact investment. Connect with us to collaborate and invest in people together.
