How the Relief Fund Will Help

The Monkey & The Elephant is beyond grateful to receive financial support from the Fairmount CDC Business Relief Fund. Since closing on Tuesday March 17th, we have found ourselves missing our customers and overwhelmed by the love and support that has been extended. The funds we received from the relief fund will be used to help us cover our fixed expenses, including payroll, since closing. We remain hopeful that we will be able to re-open soon and can't wait to see everyone when we do!

How you Can Continue to Support The Monkey & The Elephant

  • Gift cards are available on our website.

  • We are a non-profit, so donations are also welcome, and can be made here.
