The ASSOCIUM Community Chest (ACC) is excited to have partnered with Sketch, and their partner Cue, this year to award budding entrepreneurs with a micro grant to assist in the launch of their business. Through an extensive selection process, our combined panel of supporters will choose applicants who show promise both in ambition and idea, as well as need in the areas of business guidance and finance. We will once again ask our guests for their generosity in opening their hearts and wallets in patronage of the ACC.
The ASSOCIUM Community Chest has been created to develop economic independence and the opportunity for people to pursue their interests with dignity and respect. The ACC will seek to facilitate an opportunity for promising entrepreneurs in our communities to gain business skills, who would otherwise never be given a chance.
