Celebrating 25 years of providing economic development services to the region!
WEDCO, the Wentworth Economic Development Corporation, Inc., is a non-profit 501(c) (3) founded in 1993. Our mission is to promote and support businesses and the creation of employment opportunities by providing development assistance and financing. Our service area encompasses the Towns of Brookfield, Effingham, Farmington, Middleton, Milton, Moultonborough, New Durham, Sandwich, Tuftonboro, Wakefield and Wolfeboro.
However, WEDCO’s primary focus is lending to retain and create employment opportunities for area residents. To date, we have loaned more than $5 million and leveraged almost $32 million. This lending activity has resulted in the creation and retention of 525 jobs.
2021 will be another busy year and we look forward to the challenges and opportunities it presents. We will continue to be a source of business financing, leveraging both traditional financing and equity which will result in employment opportunities. In addition, we will continue to provide business advising services through our partnerships with Lakes Region SCORE and the NH Small Business Development Center.
Unlike most non-profit organizations we do not engage in ongoing fundraising activities, collect membership dues, etc., nor do we depend on financial support from Town or County Governments. Our revenue comes from fees for service, interest income, grants, contributions and tax credit awards.
Please consider making a tax-deductible donation to support our mission, including but not limited to, business counseling services, educational workshops, and lending activities to business start-ups, expansions, relocations, etc. with priority given to job creation and retention.
