We eagerly serve small business owners throughout Chicagoland and beyond. But we prioritize working with entrepreneurs that have been traditionally underserved: Black and Latinx, women, or low-income.

We believe that entrepreneurs from any background can start and grow businesses that create wealth for their families and communities.

In 2020, Allies for Community Business provided nearly $400,000,000 to over 22,000 community businesses in Illinois and Indiana. We also provided one-on-one and group coaching to approximately 15,000 community business owners struggling to survive the pandemic.

We are eager to provide more of the capital, coaching, and collaboration that small business owners need to grow great businesses in their community.
