The Ti-Alliance Entrepreneurs Fund is a great way for contributors to give tax-deductible donations that support local small business start-ups and expansion. Invest in your community.
The role of the fund is to stimulate economic growth and opportunity through “gap financing” for new and existing micro and small businesses that will create jobs in the Ticonderoga area. Here’s how the Fund for Entrepreneurship and Revitalization works.
Monies from various sources including private individuals, public and private foundations, and state and federal government can be combined in a single fund to provide monies for local small business development and expansion. Our goal is to raise a base of $50,000 in 2020, which will make our fund eligible for additional state and federal matching funds.
The Fund will assist local applicants with good business plans and a drive to succeed. We are currently focused on businesses that expand year-round employment in tourism, medical services, and tech/light manufacturing, including established businesses owned by women, youth, veterans, and persons with disabilities. One-on-one mentorship will be provided to all successful applicants.
Interested applicants can download an application and submit it to Chris Mallon at firstname.lastname@example.org.
