[Q] Does EB-5 allow an investor to individually invest in a non-profit organization entity?


No, under the EB-5 law, an individual investor can individually invest in only for-profit entity, such as a for-profit limited partnership entity. In the context of a regional center EB-5 project, however, an individual investor (usually along with numerous other individual investors) may invest in a for-profit limited partnership enterprise, which in turn can loan the money to a non-profit entity, such as a quasi-governmental development agency, creating jobs.
