The Save Small Business Fund is a grantmaking initiative offering short-term relief for small employers in the United States and its territories.
Small businesses are the foundation of our communities and our economy. Employing nearly half the American workforce, companies like yours keep our neighborhoods running and make them feel like home.
We know you’re facing multiple challenges right now, and every dollar counts.
Funded by corporate and philanthropic partners, the Save Small Business Fund is a collective effort to provide $5,000 grants to as many small employers as we can. We hope these supplemental funds will help you get through the next days and weeks.
Applications open on April 20. For more information, see savesmallbusiness.com
