All over town, businesses who have received the direct cash grants have put up posters to thank the community for their donations. Look for them around town! Many more will be going up in the coming weeks, as the vast majority of businesses who received the grants remain closed during the shelter in place order. Thank you Mill Valley and sincere gratitude to the UPS Store in Tam Junction for printing these posters and to designer extraordinaire Todd Barbee for making it happen.
Since its launch in April, the Mill Valley Chamber’s COVID-19 MV Business Fund has raised more than $87,000 to support local businesses amidst the COVID-19 crisis. Every $1,000 raised equals a $1,000 direct cash grant issued to local businesses who met a baseline of criteria. The total raised includes $15,000 from the County of Marin and $2,500 from the Bank of Marin, enough to fun 87 grants, more than 60 of which have already been received by local businesses and nonprofits.
