HFLA operates very efficiently. We rely on our working board plus one part-time administrator. HFLA has never been a beneficiary of Federation or the United Way.

Our named loan funds and targeted donations provide the funding for interest-free loans. HFLA covers its bare-bones operating budget through our annual campaign,  general donations and tribute cards.

Support  HFLA with an annual donation to help us cover our minimal operating costs. A donation to our operating fund allows the HFLA to continue to grant loans.

Named Loan Funds
Named loan funds may be established by calling our office and speaking to our administrator. The minimum donation to establish a named loan fund is $3600. The beauty of these funds is that they "recycle" your money--the money is lent out and repaid, over and over again. The fund stays intact while it helps members in our community.

Tribute Cards

Honour a simcha or significant event in someone's life and support HFLA at the same time.

With the ongoing support of our donors, we are be able to continue this great and ancient tradition of "gemillut chesed" - deeds of loving kindness - far into the future.

To place an order for a tribute card fill in the form below. Please understand because of the cost of postage, we can not process tribute cards of less than $18.

About Us

Tribute Cards

The Hebrew Free Loan Association (HFLA) helps people help themselves by granting interest-free loans to members of BC's Jewish Community.

We offer people a helping hand, or hand up, not a hand out. In the process, loan recipients maintain dignity and self-sufficiency as they repay their interest-free loans. Our organization is founded on the mitzvah of Gemilut Chesed — Deeds of Loving Kindness.
