Fairmount CDC has put together a COVID-19 Business Relief Fund to support our local businesses who are suffering from the immediate effects of COVID-19. We are asking neighbors and people who support local business to contribute any amount possible; there is nothing too big or too small, and it is fully tax deductible.
A family foundation will donate $5000 in matching grant funds to the Business Relief Fund.
Some examples of what your contribution might help cover:
-Utility bills or rent
-Tips for hourly staff
-Cover other fixed costs
All funding requests will be reviewed by a committee who will ensure equitable funding across those requests. As money comes in, we will allocate it once a week to businesses based need. We are hoping that, with enough support, we will be able to alleviate some of the burden for as many business owners as possible.
If you have any questions, please email Sarajane Blair: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for your support! Our community needs you right now!
