We help fund Entrepreneurs and teach financial responsibility.


The Animas Foundation has a mission to bring economic growth opportunities to low-income families by micro-funding and mentoring entrepreneurial, small business ventures among low and middle-income families based on strength of character and not on a credit rating or lack of collateral.  We are teachers of financial literacy and asset building programs to small business owners and to families looking to transform themselves and break the generational cycle of poverty.
