Through the spring and summer of 2020, the Mill Valley community locked arms with local small businesses, donating to the Chamber’s COVID-19 Mill Valley Business Fund, our campaign to raise funds for as many $1,000 direct cash grants as possible at a moment of crisis amidst the pandemic.

You donated, en masse, raising nearly $100,000 to support almost 100 grants to businesses. Due to the ever-murky prospects for local Mill Valley businesses on the horizon, we’re hoping you’ll take the opportunity to support your local community again, in a slightly different but no-less-meaningful way.

The biggest differences this time are that you have the ability to designate your donation specifically to your favorite business(es) and your donation is tax-deductible via MarinLink.org, our fiscal custodian and nonprofit partner. To make a donation online by credit card, click the Donate button below to be directed to the MarinLink website

In the “In Honor of” field, type in the names of the business(es) you’d like your donation to go to – we’ll split the donation evenly among them. If you don’t designate a business, we will pool not-designated donations to support the continued creation of $1,000 direct cash grants to the businesses that applied but weren’t fulfilled with the funds raised.

Indicate recipient(s) in the “In Honor of” portion of the form – we’ll split the donation evenly among them. If you don’t designate a business, we will pool not-designated donations to support the continued creation of $1,000 direct cash grants to the businesses that applied to our GoFundMe campaign in the spring and summer but weren’t fulfilled with the funds raised.

Key details:

  • We welcome donations of any size to the Mill Valley Thrive Fund to help our business community, and we have already received donations from $25 to $25,000.
  • Donations of less than $100 will go into the General Fund for businesses that have previously applied for $1,000 direct cash grants. Applications for these grants closed in July 2020. We are no longer accepting new applications due to the overwhelming demand.
  • Donations earmarked for a specific business must be $100 or more.
  • Folks can specify multiple recipients at the $100+ level.
  • Not one nickel of the funds raised will go to the Mill Valley Chamber. This is one more way we are trying to help an incredible community in pain. After you donate, please spread the word!
