EB-5 Q&A:How can an EB-5 investor invest in a non-profit project


All EB-5 investors must invest in a commercial enterprise. Commercial enterprise means any for-profit activity formed for the ongoing conduct of lawful business.  A nonprofit project does not qualify for EB-5.   If you were to invest in a commercial Regional Center doing business by lending money to a construction company that was building a wing on the school building, your non-profit school would benefit in the end.
