About Us

Evergreen Business Capital is a private, nonprofit organization authorized by the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) as a Certified Development Company (CDC)


We are dedicated to offering business capital services that enhance small business growth in our region, while providing the most exceptional service in our industry. 

Since our founding in 1980, we have connected businesses in Washington, Oregon, Alaska and Northern Idaho with financing solutions that lower barriers to commercial real estate ownership and boost economic development.

In our capacity as a CDC, we facilitate the SBA 504 Loan Program and several other business loans. Through these programs, Evergreen has helped small businesses create more than 37,000 jobs and make more than $2 billion in capital improvements. We have advanced small-business development by providing loans totaling upward of $800 million.

The largest CDC in the Pacific Northwest, Evergreen is also actively involved with industry affairs and other organizations aimed at improving economic vitality in Northwest communities.



Our mission is to provide superior economic development solutions that support small business stability, growth, and job creation.



We envision a region of healthy, thriving communities where people are empowered to start, develop and grow businesses – providing jobs and stability to the residents of their communities.
