LiftFund’s Hurricane Relief Support Programs for Small Business Owners
Small businesses are an engine for economic prosperity, and they’re the backbone of our U.S. economy. When a natural disaster like a hurricane strikes, small businesses are critical to rebuilding communities, but they often need support to get back on their feet.
According to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), more than 40% of businesses will never reopen after a disaster and from those that do, only 29% will still be in operation after two years. However, these small businesses represent a powerful economic force that generates $1.87 trillion in annual revenue (The Big Picture, AEO) and has the unrivaled potential to create jobs, hire locally and revitalize communities.
Hurricane Relief Fund
LiftFund has historically helped small businesses and communities through Hurricanes Katrina (2005), Ike (2008), Sandy (2012) and now we are ready to help the Texas Gulf coast and Florida rebuild after the devastation of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma.
We have created the Hurricane Relief Small Business Fund to support small businesses and communities rebuild in the impacted counties. Click here to learn more about our Hurricane Relief Support Programs.
Funding and Financing Partners
Our small business relief efforts are made possible with the generous support of JPMorgan Chase, Groupon, Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses, and other generous donors to help lift those small businesses and communities affected by the recent hurricanes.
