Our Customer-Centric Approach

We partner with impact companies and investors who share a common drive to create better lives and stronger communities. Our work is shaped by your needs. Our commitment is to make your impact possible. Through transparent and trusting relationships, we put you first–because that’s what impact investing should look like.

We are a funder who listens. Impact is a journey, and we work to put ourselves in your shoes to ensure that roadblocks don’t get in your way.
A Thought Partner
We’re in this with you. Our job is to support you and provide perspective to ensure your application is best positioned for approval.
Our responsibility is to be upfront about your potential fit in our portfolio. We'll inform you on weaknesses and strengths we see in your model.
Fast and flexible funding. That’s what we do. We understand urgency and we prioritize quick feedback.
Customized Solutions
Challenging problems often demand nontraditional solutions. We provide a variety of creative support tailored to the roadblock or opportunity at hand.
Rolling Cycle
Roadblocks can emerge at any point, which is why proposals for loans are accepted on a rolling basis throughout the year.
Because of ORA, not a single one of our partners or customers had to fall through the cracks and we were able to maintain critical momentum to come through the crisis stronger than we had entered. Most funders recoil when they see desperate situations but ORA rushes in and knows how to separate short term crisis from long term impact potential.
