“CBO Financial was instrumental in helping us to finance a community center, which could not have been built without the flexible financing provided by CBO; we found the CBO team to be highly competent, professional and they delivered what they promised. I highly recommend that other nonprofits work with the team at CBO Financial for their project financing needs.”
