Demonstrating their ongoing commitment to small businesses, Chase and LivingSocial are sponsoring “Mission: Small Business℠” a grant program awarding up to $3 million to small business owners nationwide.
The Program, which will provide up to 12 individual grants of $250,000 was developed to provide small businesses with resources needed to make a positive impact on their business.
Mission: Small Business℠ invites small business owners who have been in business for at least two years and have less than 100 employees to apply for a Grant for their business. Small business owners will be required to tell us why their business is unique, outline a proposed plan for utilizing the Grant to grow their business and describe how the business is involved with its community.
Consumers are encouraged to get involved by clicking the “Support” button at missionsmallbusiness.com and voting for their favorite registered small businesses. Each time a consumer clicks to support small business, Chase will add five dollars to the Grant Pool, up to a maximum of $3 million. Each registered small business must receive at least 250 votes to be considered for a Grant. The voting period is open from May 7, 2012 through June 30, 2012.
At the end of the Voting Period, small business applicants that have received 250 votes will have their applications evaluated and Grant Recipients will be chosen. Grant Recipients will be announced on or before September 15, 2012
What this type of grant would mean to us at Senior Voice America is the opportunity to continue to expand our reach and put the newspaper in cities across the country. It would also help speed up the development and preparation for our television show… another way Senior Voice can bring you important, informative and entertaining news and information.
If you have a Facebook page would like to support Senior Voice America in our effort to qualify for a chance at receiving this grant, please go to www.missionsmallbusiness.com and click on the Log in & Support button. Then when you login all you have to do is enter Senior Voice America in the business name section of the next page. If we get our 250 votes we have a chance!
