AAFE’s small business affiliate, Renaissance Economic Development Corporation, has established an Emergency Small Business Relief Fund to support businesses in our community hard hit by the coronavirus scare. Funding will allow Renaissance to provide financial assistance to business owners who are facing the biggest challenge since the devastating 9/11 attacks two decades ago.  Your support will strengthen our campaign to sustain our treasured small businesses during this difficult time.

(Click here for more information about the fund).

For Asian Pacific American Heritage Month, we’re joining AAPI-Data and Asian Pacific Fund‘s #GiveinMay campaign to raise awareness and funds not just for our own organization, but for many other AAPI nonprofits across the country. Visit our page (see the link below) to learn how you can support our essential small businesses struggling to survive through COVID-19.
