The AMPLIFY Fund is an initiative of Trinity United Methodist Church’s Anti-Racist Allyship. Our mission is to expand the influence of Black-owned businesses by helping to dismantle financial barriers through small-business support. This grant specifically funds the opportunity for Black entrepreneurs to employ an hourly Virtual Assistant for twelve weeks. Optional guidance by an expert in the field on how to structure work and manage the time of a Virtual Assistant for maximum effectiveness is available at no cost. While most business owners will be working to build earnings capacity for retaining administrative support some may have a specific short-term project that can be accomplished with grant funding.
Please check back for the announcement of future grant cycles.
