Description of Organization:
Founded in 2011, RE-volv is a nonprofit organization based in San Francisco that

Description of Project:
RE-volv is looking for someone with business planning and financial analysis skills to
build a financial model that will calculate the growth potential of our revolving solar loan
fund given various inputs. The inputs include funding sources of different types, interest
rates, size and number of solar projects, increased staff, and more. This project will
require the consultant to create a growth trajectory that simulates a high growth, a middle
growth, and a low growth scenario. RE-volv is looking to determine how different
influxes of cash at different points along the revolving fund’s growth trajectory would
influence the growth of the fund over longer periods of time. This model will help REvolv chart a course to becoming a self-sustaining nonprofit organization based on earned
revenues from the revolving fund.
Work can be done remotely or in our SOMA office. RE-volv is looking for someone who
can help us develop this model in the time frame listed.
