Right now is the perfect time to give back to your favorite downtown businesses and have that contribution count TWICE thanks to GoFundMe’s small business relief initiative!
While many downtown shops and restaurants are still open and providing services right now, business has slowed drastically. Many could use a boost to help them cover fixed costs like overhead and payroll and ensure that they’ll be able to keep their doors open and their employees supported through the pandemic.
GoFundMe Fundraising has launched a small business relief initiative, which will issue $500 matching grants to businesses who raise at least $500 in their GoFundMe campaigns! We will keep this page up-to-date with all the downtown business campaigns as we become aware of them. Making a donation to one of these campaigns is a great way to directly support your favorite businesses, and have your donation count twice!
