GoFundMe $500 Grants for Small Businesses

GoFundMe, the company that empowers individuals and nonprofits to turn compassion into action through free online fundraising tools, is showing true leadership during these difficult times through the establishment of its Small Business Relief Initiative. The program is designed to support local businesses facing financial difficulty. Through the initiative, the Small Business Relief Fund will issue $500 matching grants to qualifying businesses that raise at least $500 on GoFundMe.  

Reciprocally, GoFundMe made it even easier to support your favorite local businesses by partnering with Yelp and Intuit Quickbooks. Through such partnership, a centralized hub was created to help supporters verify fundraisers by business name or location. To determine if your small business qualifies for a matching grant, or for more information about the Small Business Relief Initiative to share with your favorite small business, please click here

We hope your business, or a business you support, receives the assistance its needs from a GoFundMe matching grant. If additional support is needed, however, please see our articles about further financial support available to small businesses impacted by COVID-19 in our March 18th, March 23rd and March 24th posts.

And, if YOU have additional information to provide to the SYS community, we want to share it!
