Helping Small Business Through COVID-19

A Nashville family leading a group of entrepreneurs want to make sure that during this difficult business environment entrepreneurs of every age, economic or cultural background have access to the additional financial resources they need and deserve. Therefore, they will be giving up to $2 million dollars in small businesses whose services have been tremendously impacted by COVID-19. Qualified applicants are eligible to apply for up to $50,000 each. This is a grant—not a loan—made because we believe that small businesses and entrepreneurs are at the core of what makes our city and nation great. Our only expectation is that you continue to pursue your entrepreneurial vision and provide an outstanding service enriching the lives of your employees, customers and community.
