We proudly serve the people of Southeast Alaska who are passionate about something bigger than themselves and who are dedicated to doing great things with their passion. 


Our clients come from all walks of life and are at all different stages of the business lifecycle. We find that a common thread among all our clients is their willingness to roll up their sleeves and get to work. This entrepreneurial spirit and mindset is a necessary component of any successful business. 

When a client walks in our door they may not know exactly what they need, but our team will work with them to build a plan of action to get them to their destination. Spruce Root's ultimate goal is to get our clients' businesses to the point where they no longer need financing through a Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI).  We are successful when a business becomes financially sound enough to get traditional financing through a bank or credit union.

NOTE: Spruce Root's Loan Program and Path to Prosperity Program are open to residents over the age of 18 and to companies whose primary operations are located in Southeast Alaska.
