About Us

The Cooperative Fund of New England (CFNE) is a community development loan fund that facilitates socially responsible investing in cooperatives, community-oriented nonprofits, and worker-owned businesses in New England and adjacent communities in New York.

Since CFNE's founding in 1975, we have made almost 800 loans, totaling over $41 million, which have resulted in the creation or retention of over 10,600 jobs and 5,600 housing units across the region.
