SLU Chamber Small Business & Nonprofit Relief FUND
This fund is intended to help support South Lake Union’s small businesses & nonprofits impacted by COVID-19. While there are multiple grant relief resources becoming available, we have identified gaps that leave some of our neighborhood businesses and nonprofits without relief opportunities. This fund aims to address any funding gaps and support all South Lake Union small businesses & nonprofits. We are currently collecting contributions to the fund with a goal of $250,000.
Help us reach our goal of $250,000
Please donate to Round 2 of our #SLUChamberFund so we can continue to aid our South Lake Union community!
With Amazon, Facebook and Google not returning to South Lake Union until 2021 or later, the foot traffic that South Lake Union is used to won't be anywhere near normal. We know that some of the hardest days are still ahead for our businesses and nonprofits. We need your donations now more than ever!
Businesses and individuals! No amount is too small. Help us reach our goal of $250,000.
Join the list of generous donors: 400 Fairview, Amazon, BECU, Google, Kaiser Permanente, Seattle Cancer Care Alliance, Seattle Children's Research Institute, The Mirabella Seattle Foundation, Vulcan Inc., Umpqua Bank, and many individual donors!
Your contributions make a difference for South Lake Union small businesses & nonprofits! See below some responses we've received. Help us continue making an impact. These are your neighbors & your community; donate now!
"Wow, we cannot express our gratitude enough! While it's nice to have the Chamber in good times
it's truly a blessing during the hard times! We love our SLU neighborhood and are thankful for the community support.
As a founding member of the chamber, never in his [Athletic Awards Owner]
wildest dreams would he have imagined the chamber would be so successful and powerful to give money to needy businesses, it's truly astonishing what you and your team have accomplished!" - Ben & Monty Holmes, Athletic Awards
"I am very grateful for the SLU Chamber’s generosity. This is the first of anything that we [Art Marble 21] have applied for that we have received help. Thank you very much! It means a lot. Thank you again and we look forward to opening back up in the near future." - Danny Pentin, Owner, Art Marble 21
We Still Need Your Donations
Please continue to donate so we can help more #SouthLakeUnion businesses and nonprofits. Amazon, Facebook, and Google won't be returning to the neighborhood until 2021. This is a huge loss in foot traffic and spending in SLU making your donation that much more important to our businesses, nonprofits, and restaurants!
