We launched our lenderfit portal on June 1st and it's been a great experience. As one of our borrowers said yesterday, "it's amazing!" Top two features are the green check marks that confirm to borrowers we've received their documents (so they don't have to wonder, call or email) and multiple opportunities to communicate with borrowers (texts, messaging, weekly updates). I have to add a third: having a history of those communications in each borrower's file. ------------------------------ Judy Fletcher [More]

Interesting question and topic, Josh. Propel Nonprofits has a broad range of programs in support of nonprofits, including both a loan fund and a fiscal sponsorship program (Model C.)  Since we're already in this work we don't need a tutorial, but I'll be interested to hear what emerges from your question.  Kate Barr ------------------------------ Kate Barr President & CEO Propel Nonprofits Minneapolis MN 612.278.7182 ------------------------------
