NDC/Stepping Stones Paycheck Protection Program DE Loan App - OPEN AT 9AM

April 24, 2020 8:31 AM | Philanthropy Delaware (Administrator)

Delaware Nonprofits Can Access Paycheck Protection Program Loan through NDC & Stepping Stones. Click here to see full Press Release.


This opportunity is made possible through the generous underwriting of Philanthropy Delaware Members:  Longwood Foundation, Welfare Foundation, the Jessie Ball duPont Fund, and with support from Discover Bank, the National Development Council (NDC) & Stepping Stones, both CFDIs are invested in the local Delaware community.

Who can apply?  Any Delaware 501c3 or 501c19 which is eligible to apply for the SBA PPP loan and has not yet received confirmation that it was approved by another financial institution.  Note, the SBA will only offer one loan per organization.  Because this funding is set aside for Delaware nonprofits, there is a smaller waiting list to the SBA.  We do encourage nonprofits that if they find out they received an SBA approval through another lending institution, they notify NDC (and vice versa). Additionally, nonprofits are encouraged to apply to NDC, but also to continue to seek PPP funding at their banking institution.

With the assumption that the legislation passes and President Trump signs it into law,

NDC will open the loan application portal at 9AM today - Friday, April 24.
