Donating to Charity Could Win You $5,000 Toward Your Business or Side Hustle
Get a cash infusion by paying it forward.
While the old axiom states that 90 percent of small businesses fail isn't true, 2020 was certainly a difficult year for small companies. The true failure rate for small businesses is more like 20 percent in the first year, and about 70 percent fail within 10 years. That's certainly a better success rate than just 10 percent, but with pandemic restrictions slowing the economy, roughly 100,000 businesses failed in 2020, while many more are still struggling to pull themselves out of the downfall.
If your business is strapped for cash, finding a loan isn't always easy — especially if you've taken another loan out in the past. However, you don't have to have an uncomfortable talk with a family member or the bank to get a quick influx of cash. You can just donate to charity to earn a chance at a $5,000 cash infusion for your business.
This giveaway is organized by StackCommerce, and all you have to do is enter is make a donation of your choosing to The Playing For Change Foundation. The more you donate, the more entries you get to become the winner, which will be drawn on or around July 18, 2021.
