THE SAINT LOUIS JEWISH LOAN SOCIETY

Providing Interest-Free Loans

When you lend money to My people, ... , do not act toward him as a creditor; do not lay interest upon him. Exodus 22:24

 

R’Abba said in the name of R’Shimon ben Lakish: A lender is greater than one who gives charity, and one who puts [working capital] in the pocket is more [outstanding] than them all.  Shabbos 63a

OUR MISSION

WHO WE ARE & WHAT WE DO

The St Louis Jewish Loan Society is a Missouri nonprofit corporation recognized by the Internal Revenue Service as a public charity under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.  We provide interest-free loans to qualified applicants who cannot obtain traditional financing.  We believe that everyone deserves access to financial stability and the opportunity to build a better future for themselves and their families.

 

We are community-funded gamach serving the Greater St Louis kehilla.  We are presently not able to provide loans to all qualified applicants, nor are we generally able to accommodate loan requests that fall outside of our specific Loan Program parameters, such as extending the maximum payback period or increasing the maximum loan amount.  We aim to change these parameters as our available working capital increases.
 

That being said, we are here to help.  If your particular financial needs fall outside of one of our Loan Programs, please let us know your specific financial goals so we can determine if, and to what extent, we are able to assist you.  We are a community-based chesed organization and endeavor to be flexible.  All information you share with us will be confidential and treated with respect.

We are happy to answer any questions you may have by contacting us at info@stljewishloans.org.
