Applications OPEN: SLU Small Business & Nonprofit FUND

April 20, 2020

This fund is intended to help support South Lake Union’s small businesses & nonprofits impacted by COVID-19. While there are multiple grant relief resources becoming available, we have identified gaps that leave some of our neighborhood businesses and nonprofits without relief opportunities. This fund aims to address any funding gaps and support all South Lake Union small businesses & nonprofits.

We are currently collecting contributions to the fund with a goal of $250,000.

We’ve raised $37,000 so far! Many thanks to all who have donated including Vulcan, Seattle Children’s Research Institute, and 400 Fairview.
