The leadership of the Economic Development Council has established the Economic Relief Fund through our Center for Business & Innovation, a 501(c)(3) charitable non-profit, in recognition of the deep and rapid downward pressure felt by this community by the pandemic. This fund is to support the entrepreneurs of Thurston County as they deal with loss of revenue, markets, customers, and interrupted supply chains. We have used this fund to support our business community through direct cash grants in the amounts ranging from $1,500 to $10,000 according to their needs. This fund acts as a gap filler for businesses ineligible for Thurston Strong grants and is another tool for us to support the entrepreneurial ecosystem of Thurston County.

Thank you for considering a contribution!
