United Way of El Paso County officials announced the launch of a new donor network designed for small businesses throughout El Paso looking to make a difference in the community.
Through the Small Business, Big Impact (SBBI) Network, small businesses have the opportunity to give back, develop and execute their corporate social responsibility goals, and receive acknowledgement for the positive change they’re enacting in the community.
Officials say to join, small businesses are asked to contribute $1,200 to our Community Impact Fund. Payments can be made annually, quarterly, and monthly.
“Contributions made to our Community Impact Fund support early childhood education and youth success programs, mental health and wellness services, emergency food and shelter programs, financial stability programs, and more,” officials shared.
Members of SBBI reap many benefits, including:
- Brand exposure on United Way of El Paso County’s social media pages, website, newsletters and publications
- Volunteer and team-building opportunities to connect with the community and their team
- Access to events like our Appreciation Luncheon, Leadership Society reception and more
- Invitation to participate in United Way committees that guide our programs and direct donor dollars
Officials added, “United Way understands and values the impact small businesses have on the community, and the Small Business, Big Impact Network works to acknowledge their dedication to supporting those in need in the community.”
