Pay it Forward Fund
10/1/2020 - 12/31/2021
Learning how to navigate through the difficulties of 2020 has been a challenge for every one of us. For business owners, it has been even more difficult. Some industries were hit much harder than others and are still struggling to keep the doors open and the lights on. These business owners need the Iowa City Area Business Partnership now more than ever. Membership provides access to resources, information, connection, promotion, and a voice to legislators, as well as a family of member businesses to lean on in these trying times.
It is for these member businesses we have created a Pay It Forward Fund. Here’s how you can help!
We ask that if your business is secure, that you consider paying a little more to cover the membership dues of a business who can’t afford it right now. A one-time $365 investment will cover the base membership for one small business, keeping them as a member of our organization and demonstrating your business's support of our community! (Scroll down for promotional benefits). You also have the option to decide the amount you would like to contribute, down to $10. Every bit helps!
Your support comes with the added benefit of keeping the Business Partnership financially stable, so that we can continue advocating for businesses like yours.
Our small local businesses are the main pillars of keeping our community unique and our local economy strong. Thank you for standing with us to support those who need it! Click the Register button to donate now.
