Sam's Club Giving Awards $8.8 Million in Grants to Help Small Business Owners Gain Access to Capital.

New grants are part of five-year plan to bolster community lending resources and unlock access to affordable capital for America's underserved small business owners. 
In advance of National Small Business Week, Sam's Club and Sam's Club Giving are announcing their continued commitment to small business owners-especially women, minorities and veterans-with $8.8 million in new grants.
