To extend a helping hand to small businesses suffering from the impacts of the coronavirus pandemic, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation – in partnership with Vistaprint and a coalition of supporting companies, foundations, and philanthropic donors – is working to provide financial relief through the “Save Small Business Fund”. The “Save Small Business Fund” is a grant-making initiative to offer $5,000 grants that provide short-term relief for employers across the United States.  These one-time supplemental cash grants are for businesses that have between 3-20 employees and operate in an economically vulnerable community (you can search eligibility by zip code here).  I know your business may not fit in this small business category, but I encourage you to forward to a friend, neighbor or supplier who may benefit. The grant application will go live on Monday, April 20 at 3 p.m.

Visit savesmallbusiness.com for more details about the fund, to get an email reminder when the application launches and to apply for a grant.

We’re in this together.
