Community Investment Funds Grants
COMMUNITY INVESTMENT FUNDS – CURRENTLY ON HOLD DURING PANDEMIC
During the COVID-19 pandemic, we have suspended our Community Investment Funds program. The program will remain on hold until our business climate returns to normal.
In the meantime, the Pullman Chamber is exploring new ways to help the businesses in our community in other ways:
PULLMAN CHAMBER AND VISITOR CENTER SUPPORTS LOCAL BUSINESSES WITH 12 DAYS OF PAY-IT-FORWARD PULLMAN
The Pullman Chamber and Visitor Center held a “12 Days of Pay-It-Forward Pullman” program in December to help stimulate and support local retail stores and restaurants. The promotion featured a special promotion at a Pullman business each day between December 12 and December 23, and also included a drawing for those that shopped participating businesses during the 12 Days. Utilizing the Pullman Chamber’s Community Investment Funds, along with a generous donation from Schweitzer Engineering Laboratories, the Chamber was able to reinvest $21,985 back into Pullman businesses. The 12 Days program is part of a larger campaign for Shop Local Pullman called P-llman Needs U.
Participating businesses included Paradise Creek Brewery, My Office Bar & Grill, Merry Cellars Winery, Palouse Country Candy, The Coug Store, Rockstar Body Bar, Roost Coffee & Market, Rico’s Tavern, Monroe, Birch & Barley, Neill’s Flowers & Gifts, Neill’s Coffee & Ice Cream, Cougar Country Drive-In, and B&L Bicycles. Five gift certificates to Zeppoz in the amount of $100 each were awarded to drawing winners.
The Pullman Chamber would like to thank all those that participated in “12 Days of Pay-It-Forward Pullman” and made it a success for the retail stores and restaurants that hosted daily specials. The Chamber is also exploring options for helping other local businesses in 2021.
