Preserving human dignity with interest-free loans…

The Hebrew Free Loan Society (HFLS) uses interest-free lending to help people transform their lives. This form of Jewish philanthropy is rooted in an age-old tradition that believes helping people become self-sufficient is the highest form of charity.

Our interest-free loans enable people to attend college or graduate school, start or expand a small business, or meet emergency needs. Since our founding in 1892, we have provided more than $260 million in loans to nearly 875,000 borrowers, while maintaining a repayment rate of 99%.

If you need help, or if you want to help others, we encourage you to contact us.
