Lenders Helping Families

The Lender Challenge to do more for families with critically ill children

Give $10 for every loan closed to the MBA Opens Doors Foundation to help families with critically ill children stay in their homes.

The MBA Opens Doors Foundation is the industry’s bridge between the mortgage industry and the families that need our help. So this year, join your industry colleagues and to help MBA Opens Doors do more for families with critically ill children. 

Commit to giving $10 for every loan closed each month to the MBA Opens Doors Foundation.  Here’s why:

Thousands of children in our communities fall ill each year and for families already living pay check to pay check, a child’s serious illness can devastate them financially. Their homes, once a place of refuge and security are suddenly threatened. But we can help.

In 10 years, the MBA Opens Doors Foundation has helped nearly 10,000 families from every state in the country, and provided more than $14.5 million in mortgage and rental assistance specifically to families with critically ill children who are also in danger of losing their homes.  

Join your industry colleagues for a minimum of six months and donate $10 for every loan closed each month. And, because the Mortgage Bankers Association pays 100% of the Foundation's operational expenses, 100% of your monthly contribution goes directly to a family in need.

 There are two ways to join the challenge:

1.  Donate $10 for every loan closed for a minimum of six months by visiting Lenders Helping Families in Need. 

2.  Make the pledge and each month, MBA Opens Doors Foundation will send you the proper form and payment information for you to process a monthly check. Just send the form back to Deborah Dubois at ddubois@mba.org.  

Need more information? Contact Deborah Dubois, President of MBA Opens Doors Foundation at ddubois@mba.org or by phone at 202-557-2909.

 Please join us and help keep families with critically ill children in their homes.


"We would just like to thank you for the grant. It has helped us out a great deal. It made the month of May a great month. The work you all do does more than you know, and for that we are grateful."
"Thank you for all your generosity and support you have extended to our family. We can't thank you enough for selecting our family as one of the recipients of your generous financial gifts. Your thoughtfulness moved us to tears and truly has helped us through such a difficult time. When your child has a life ending illness you take each day as it comes. Some days are better than others. But the one constant in our lives are the friends, community and complete strangers that pray for our family. We consider you to be part of our family. For all you do, we thank you."
"To MBA Opens Doors, Thank you so much for helping my family out during this hard time. It is greatly appreciated."
