Help us support
We see the value that minority-owned businesses bring to our communities.
Tri Counties Bank is partnering with four organizations that offer programs to assist in the development of minority-owned businesses, including microlending programs to create or grow businesses, technical assistance, and training opportunities.
Please help us in supporting these organizations. The bank is matching donations up to $25,000 for each organization until November 30, 2020.
We encourage you to preview the organizations below to learn more and donate.
The Sacramento Black Chamber of Commerce strives to meet the needs of its member businesses by providing the support they need to maintain and grow their businesses with tools provided by the chamber. This initiative will benefit the Chamber’s program to support minority-owned small businesses with technical assistance and training, and provide them with the tools they need to grow their businesses and move into workforce development. These programs include tax planning, payroll, human resources needs, building capacity, access to capital, and marketing, including web presence and social media.
The National Asian American Coalition provides lending to non-traditional borrowers who would otherwise be overlooked by traditional banks. The program benefitting from this initiative is: the COVID-19 Small Business Loan Program, which is designed to help California small businesses through the COVID-19 pandemic. NAAC offers small businesses with working capital to help business owners restore, maintain, build, or grow their businesses. The working capital provides capital to help pay rent, purchase inventory, payroll and supplies needed to rebuild and reopen.
The Fresno Area Hispanic Foundation (FAHF) was established in 2004 with the mission to “Promote education and self-sufficiency through economic development that strengthens the community.” The FAHF is committed to all aspects of economic development and offers new means of income and advancement through entrepreneurship. Through the Microloan Program, FAHF provides access to capital to minority, small businesses in under-served, low-income communities that are primarily Hispanic. Most importantly, FAHF hand-holds businesses through the process of starting and expanding businesses to help create/retain jobs and promote thriving local economies.
The 3CORE approach to supporting minority-owned businesses within their footprint is built around their newest initiative, the Business Resource Liaison. This program is a robust, business-centered, engagement process that provides much needed one-on-one individualized support to the business community. 3CORE will use these funds to provide seed grands to minority-owned small businesses in order to further support operations, or through individualized technical assistance engagements that help these business owners pivot their business model to address today’s everchanging landscape.
