Apply to the Fremont Chamber Center of the Universe Relief Fund!

The Fremont Chamber of Commerce Center of the Universe Small Business Relief Fund is now accepting applications for our $1500.00 small business grants!

Our unique blend of small retailers, restaurants, services, and nonprofits make Fremont an incredible place to do business and work. It’s what makes the Center of the Universe, the Center of the Universe! And right now, those friends and neighbors need your support. You can help!
That’s why the nonprofit Fremont Chamber of Commerce has launched the Center of the Universe Small Business Relief Fund to help our small businesses & nonprofits impacted by COVID-19. While there are multiple grant relief resources available, we have identified gaps that leave some of our neighborhood businesses and nonprofits without relief opportunities.

Donate to the Fremont Chamber Center of the Universe Relief Fund!

Our goal is to raise a minimum of $75,000 – DONATE TODAY! No amount is too small.

Sailgating = tailgating, but socially distant on the water. We made it up. Social distance has made us delirious?!

You’ll be able to tune in from your home…or from the comfort of a paddle board, kayak, or sailboat!
