BuildFutures LLC is an affiliated company of BuildForward Capital which is focused on funding deep energy efficiency retrofits and new construction for non-profit organizations. We focus on projects below $5 million in size for the benefit of schools, museums, foundations, religious organizations, community groups and other registered 501(c) 3 entities.

Lending Platform

BuildForward Capital loans are structured as construction loans, wherein the real estate acts as collateral. Underwriting is based on standard bank models, overlaid with our extensive investment expertise. Each transaction requires approval by the credit committee and senior principals at BuildForward Capital.


The BuildForward lending network serves the needs of borrowers interested in constructing deeply energy efficient buildings through new construction, renovation and retrofit design. As professionals from the alternative investments sector, our expertise enables us to analyze credits and underwrite loans with a turnaround that is faster and more streamlined than established banks.
