2024 Member-Investor Campaign

May 28, 2024

Dear BLDC Member,

As we begin our 2024 member-investor campaign, we’re excited with all the successes we realized in the last year.

We provided assistance with loans, gap financing, coordination of business start-ups, business site locations, financial planning, marketing guidance and grant writing, but what does that mean exactly? Here are a few statistics that we feel best tell the story:

2023 and 2024 to-date:

  • We disbursed over $3.4 million in loan funds to Butte clients.
  • We saw $4,053,054 leveraged against grants and loans.
  • We served 8 clients who bought an existing business or started a new one.
  • We served over 150 clients through all departments.
  • We secured $495,000 in grant funding.

Again, thank you for your continued support! Your investment in Butte and the BLDC allows us to continue the important work we’re doing to bolster economic success in our community.


Mike Paffhausen

BLDC Board President
