Intuit Grants $5,000 Wishes for Small Businesses Through May 12

WHO:

 Intuit, Inc.
 

WHAT:

Intuit announced the first grant recipients in its "Growing Strong" Love Our Local Business program, which is granting 15 wishes of up to $5,000 value to deserving small businesses across the country. Green Bay-based Centerpiece LLC, Wisconsin's first autism treatment center, received sensory integration equipment that will help children during therapy sessions, while Beaumont, Texas-based Cookies for Kaiser received a commercial mixer to make more dog treats for animal rescue organizations. Fans can vote and small business owners can still submit wishes up to the May 12, 2013 entry deadline.

 

WHY:

Based on a September 2012 Intuit Small Business Survey, 87 percent of small business owners said their businesses are struggling to survive, and forty-seven percent of respondents said a $5,000 infusion would significantly help or even save their businesses.

 

Based on these findings, Intuit kicked off the Love Our Local Business program in the holiday season of 2012 by granting 15 small business owners wishes valued at $5,000—money that often meant the difference between surviving or thriving. Thousands of small businesses submitted their wishes. This time, Intuit is doing the same with a new group of small businesses, granting 15 wishes May 6-12. To date, Intuit has awarded more than $1.1 million to help small businesses grow.

 

WHEN:

Submit wishes through May 12, 2013
