There would be strong accountability for any such credit regardless of
management stability. A bank would not extend a line of credit to an
organization like Noisebridge (or any other corporation lacking millions
in assets) without *individuals* signing on as guarantors.

Fiscal insolvency would then -- to use Magic game terminology -- cause
any debt on a credit line to "trample" through to the individual
guarantors. Someone's personal house or car could end up repossessed to
satisfy Noisebridge debt.
