Our Loan Program

About Our Loans

Jewish Free Loan provides interest-free loans to enhance the quality of life of Jewish Arizonans. Since our inception, thousands of individuals and families have been able to navigate numerous life experiences without the worry or burden of compounding interest. While the below list of loan funds serves as the foundation of our interest-free loan program, we offer a variety of ways to assist individuals and families in financial distress as well as those looking for a little extra help.

Named Loan Funds- Founders Society

The interest-free loans provided by Jewish Free Loan are possible because of the generosity of our donors – many of whom have chosen to establish Named Loan Funds to support the provision of loans in a certain category. At the end of December 2020, JFL sunset the establishment of new Named Loan Funds.

All existing Named Loan Funds are now a part of the Founders Society. This society honors the individuals and families that help strengthen the foundation of our interest-free loan programs. All Named Loan Funds will continue to exist in perpetuity and donors will have the ability to make contributions to these loan funds.
