MarinLink and VotePlus10 Are on a Mission to Save Local Businesses
Many small businesses have faced financial challenges and hardships as a result of COVID-19. In response to these challenges, MarinLink – a non-profit organization based in Marin County that supports community-based projects – created the COVID-19 Small Business Fund Project. This project aims to provide small businesses in Marin County with much needed grants as they adjust to the new normal brought on by COVID-19.
MarinLink was founded in 2003 with the goal to generate positive change in Marin County through the Arts, Education, Environment and Health. For over a decade, MarinLink has supported a variety of different organizations through fiscal sponsorship and consulting services. Given their history of community support, creating a grant program for local businesses impacted by COVID-19 was a logical step. During these uncertain times, MarinLink is helping to support small businesses as they recover from the global pandemic.
To raise awareness for their initiative, MarinLink has partnered with VotePlus10. This partnership enables MarinLink to gain exposure for their project well beyond Marin County, increasing potential for donations, which will ultimately bolster the local small business community. Together, VotePlus10 and MarinLink hope to encourage the public to take action and make a positive impact on society.
On VotePlus10, you can find a variety of ways to take action with MarinLink and support their Small Business Fund Project, including donating or applying for a grant. Currently, there are small business funds set up with the Mill Valley Chamber of Commerce, as well as the Larkspur Chamber of Commerce. In addition, there is a COVID-19 recovery fund created by the town of Fairfax in partnership with the Fairfax Chamber of Commerce, and the County of Marin. These communities, with the help of MarinLink and VotePlus10, have come together to help their small businesses.
VotePlus10 is proud to partner with MarinLink in their mission to raise awareness of these businesses’ hardships and help them to recover following the global pandemic. Together, VotePlus10 and MarinLink are making it easier for everybody to make a difference. If you don’t have an account, click here to join MarinLink’s network, or click on one of the actions above.
