Ladder Lender List

Although we list 243 lenders – many of those loaned multiple ladders. Most schools on our list loaned ladders made by multiple students (over 400 from one elementary school) and some businesses, organizations, and families loaned more than one ladder but chose to be listed under one name – so our actual number of ladder lenders was well over 1000!
