365 Small Business Circle

365 Small Business Circle

It doesn't take much to give back to the community!

You don't have to be a major corporation to make a difference. United Way of the Lakeshore invites your business to participate in promoting lasting, positive change for all in our local community by joining our 365 Small Business Circle. 
As a business owner, you already know the value of a strong community. So much depends on it! It determines the status of our local economy and our livelihoods. It defines our lifestyles, our welfare and ultimately our futures. It affects the ability of your customers to afford your service and products. And according to SCORE.org, 85 percent of consumers have a more positive image of a company who gives to charity!

What is LIVE UNITED 365 Small Business Circle?

While United Way of the Lakeshore has been bringing business, individuals, and organizations together to advance the common good for over 100 years, a new initiative is starting to make philanthropy easier and more rewarding for small business across the Lakeshore. We are inviting small businesses to become SBC members and investors in United Way of the Lakeshore and connect with other local businesses that are dedicated to serving the community where we all live, work, and/or play!
