The Sausalito Chamber of Commerce has been supporting the collective needs of the small business community for 75 years.
Therefore we are establishing the “Love Sausalito Business Fund" to provide immediate and direct cash grants to as many of our businesses as we can. Grants are open to all Sausalito businesses NOT just chamber members. These will be modest grants, they aim to ease some of the financial hardships the current crisis is presenting.
We are also working on a Love Sausalito Loyalty Program in collaboration with the City of Sausalito that will be launched as a 12-month recovery program where residents can Shop Local and receive special discounts. Look for that program to launch when our businesses are able to fully open.
Grants from $1000 - $5,000 will be given out to Sausalito small businesses on a first-come, first-served basis as funds are raised. Our hope is to help as many applicants as possible with your generosity & support!
Qualifications for receiving a grant:
Brick and mortar retail or business in Sausalito 94965
10 or fewer full-time equivalent employees as of Jan. 2020
No existing GoFundMe campaign
Have not received any SBA or PPP Funding
None of the funds raised will go to the Sausalito Chamber. This is one more way we are trying to help our community. Please help us spread the word and share this information with those you know who love Sausalito.
