We are in unprecedented times. COVID-19 has adversely impacted small businesses in a big way. We have had to balance care for our staff and community with mitigating a global pandemic. Some of us immediately shut our doors. Others pivoted to the ever-changing demands to keep health and safety at the center while working hard to keep serving their customers.
As small business entrepreneurs we are designers, artists, musicians, retailers, seamstresses, florists, landscapers, restaurant owners, bookkeepers, nail salons, massage therapists, hairdressers, barbers, and many more services. We are part of the fabric of our communities where people gather, find familiarity and a place of comfort. We are your neighbors, your friends, and become your family.
The Small Business Relief Fund is a place where small businesses find a community of financial supporters that care about keeping their local small businesses open.
SUPPORTING YOUR COMMUNITY
Companies You Can Assist
Our member businesses are navigating the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic. Each day is a potential day the ‘CLOSED’ sign will go up. Your donation will help keep these businesses open. When you keep us open, you’re supporting your community’s local economy.
HOW TO HELP
Small businesses are critical to every local economy. Help these businesses remain sustainable. Join our network of contributors:
Your donation can help a small business cover monthly overhead costs, such as utility bills.
Your donation can help a small business cover vehicle leases, vendor costs, distribution and warehousing.
Your donation can help a small business cover a portion of payroll, payroll taxes, office and warehouse leases, and other aspects of facilities and operations.
Your donation can help a small business pay rent, cover payroll to a single full time or multiple part time employees, and even purchase inventory.
Your donation can make the difference in whether or not a small business can hit the ground running as soon as the shutdown ends. This could cover a full month of overhead expenses, maybe even two, for a small business.
