Small Businesses Strengthen Communities.
Help us continue to be there for the business owners who depend on us.
GivingTuesday is a global movement, unleashing the power of radical generosity to transform communities and the world. Even in times of economic uncertainty, we each have a deep reserve of generosity, which we can deploy in myriad ways to make a difference. Your time, kindness, skills, and voice are all things you can give, in addition to charitable donations.
This year, during the continuing national health crisis, small businesses needed help more than ever before. Many businesses were forced to pivot their operations in a shifting landscape, dramatically revamp their marketing plans, apply for loans, or make tough decisions about employees.
As the pandemic stretches on, SCORE remains committed to developing programs and resources focused on serving sectors within the small business community that have been most negatively impacted. This includes Black-owned businesses, Hispanic-owned, women-owned, and other underrepresented communities.
Your contribution to SCORE Greater Phoenix will help us continue to be there for the business owners who depend on us. Every dollar will be used to create valuable and timely resources that small business owners need to navigate the significant challenges they’re facing and keep their doors open. Please make a donation today.
One of Our Successes
Dodge started the Black Rock Bouldering Gym in Phoenix, Arizona, so he could share this sport with his local community.
Because Dodge had never started a business before, he sought out SCORE and received mentoring from Kirk Hawkinson. Hawkinson helped Dodge plan his presentation to investors, assess potential properties, and structure his lease.
Dodge says, “SCORE helped give me a solid foundation on which I could build my financial projections and accounting best practices . . . Without the direction and insight provided by my mentor Kirk, I don’t believe we would have opened the doors as quickly as we did.”
