Small Business Relief Fund

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to evolve, we have already witnessed the incredible generosity and creativity of the people of Denver. Local businesses are the backbone of RMAE and now more than ever we are committed to serving as a facilitator of resources between those who want to help, and those who need it.

In response, RAME has developed the Small Business Relief Fund to support businesses in Denver that have been financially affected by the Coronavirus pandemic. Funding will allow RMAE to provide financial grant assistance to business owners who are facing significant challenges, but do not qualify for local, state or federal relief.

The Relief Fund will provide direct grants to small business owners in Denver, Colorado. Small businesses are in need of immediate liquidity to make key changes to operations and weather this storm. 100% of donated funds will go to small businesses and all contributions are tax-deductible.

Your support will strengthen the most vulnerable small businesses during this difficult time.

RMAE will pair these grants with other resources – such as consulting guidance to manage the effects of the pandemic as well as financial resources that may include flexible working capital loans from the Entrepreneur Fund and other local, state, and federal resources that become available.

We are not yet distributing funds through the Small Business Relief Fund, but rather are looking for philanthropic support from individuals, businesses, foundations and government entities who have the resources and desire to assist.

Grants for up to $1,000 will be given to selected businesses affiliated with RMAE. A review committee will make selections based on the following criteria:

-Businesses that are not eligible or have already applied for other sources of local, state, or federal relief such as the SBA Disaster Assistance loans.
-Businesses that serve as a core community staple such as child care, rural/community grocery stores, restaurants, etc. will get priority
-The impact that this grant will have on the sustainability of the business.
