Create Jobs for USA harnesses the power of the American people to create jobs. We have a simple, but proven, solution to the jobs crisis: we turn your donations into loans to community businesses so those businesses can grow and create jobs.

In one year, Create Jobs for USA has turned $15 million in donations into $105 million in loans to community businesses—creating or maintaining 5,000 jobs.

United, we are indivisible. Join us!

Help us make a job-creating loan by clicking the “Donate” button on the right. Every $1 we receive will become $7 in loans that help put more Americans back to work.


Starbucks and Opportunity Finance Network started Create Jobs for USA in 2011. Since then, it has become an unstoppable movement of hundreds of thousands of individuals and major corporations like Banana Republic, Citi, Google Offers, and MasterCard.

Together we are creating opportunity for people across the U.S.—from a contracting business that provided work for two jobless people in Oregon, to an elder care center in Georgia that hired four people, to a low-income housing development in New Jersey that created 85 construction jobs.

At a time when most banks have tightened credit and reduced their lending, Create Jobs for USA provides job-creating capital to people and places that are overlooked by mainstream finance.

It’s time for Americans to help put Americans back to work. Together, we can solve our nation’s unemployment crisis. Donate today and join our movement!

Check out to learn more about the individuals and communities that Create Jobs for USA has helped, or read our JobRaising blog posts on The Huffington Post.

P.S. Create Jobs for USA is a featured charity. That means you get double points when you donate. Support us in the JobRaising Challenge with a donation before March 1.
