Gnu Foundation is a private, non-profit charitable organization with the mission of providing the extreme poor and most vulnerable the financial tools needed – grants, micro loans, business training and other resources – to help them work their way out of poverty.  

Gnu Foundation’s microcredit grant programs are managed by local Gnu partner organizations of high integrity and standing in their community with a proven dedication to improving lives locally.  

Gnu provides financial training resources, leadership and grants of working capital to our partners who manage social business and local microcredit programs using the group solidarity model to assure that loans are repaid and passed on to the next borrower. 

This cycle of local community management and leadership, training, borrowing and repaying has proven to be both successful and sustainable.

We are a tax-exempt organization under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
