TIME TO GIVE BACK & REBUILD!
Help us rebuild St. Louis $25 Challenge.
Let's all come together and help rebuild our communities! Your donation will help us rebuild St. Louis, by minimizing economic inequality, increase financial literacy & awareness and create more minority owned businesses in our neighborhoods!
THIS IS HOW WE ARE GOING TO HELP REBUILD ST. LOUIS:
We will increase economic development by teaching financial literacy and business education to our children, youth, and adults.
We will build strong communities by minimizing economic inequality by offering free educational resources and trainings about financial literacy, leadership, and business ownership.
We will offer life changing programs by delivering vital services focused on business education and financial literacy.
We will increase financial awareness and literacy by providing professional mentors and instructors to educate, guide, coach, motivate and inspire our children, youth, and adults.
THIS IS WHY WE NEED TO REBUILD ST. LOUIS AND HELP GROW OUR COMMUNITIES:
Imagine you or someone you love continued to experience obstacles and barriers, that kept them from starting their business or growing their business venture. Due to being a minority, lack of capital, business education, and no connection to a strong professional network.
Unfortunately, 22.5% of minority owned small businesses fail within the first year and only 9% of minority entrepreneurs have a Bachelor's Degree in business. To be a successful business owner it is important to have the proper business education to pull it through. In fact only 32% of minority-business owners have only taken a couple of business classes, while most 46% don't have any form of business education. One of the biggest challenges for 33% of minority-owned small businesses is a lack of capital and 29% of minority-owned businesses fail because of this.
Our goal? Is to remove those barriers and offer business education and financial literacy classes, and access capital. Our mission is to minimize economic inequality, provide life changing programs, and increase financial awareness and financial literacy by delivering vital services focused on business education, financial literacy and leadership.
Thank you so much for your gift. Your generosity will light up the faces and lives of the children, youth and adults that we serve. 100% of all donations go directly toward our program initiatives by helping local communities grow and stimulate the economy by creating small business ownership, teaching financial literacy and creating job opportunities.
All donations are tax deductible and 100% of donations will go towards Grind + Growth program initiatives.
Grind + Growth is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit economic development organization dedicated to teaching financial literacy through experienced based entrepreneurship training's and classes to children, youth & adults.
