We’re proud to announce the recipients of the Sonoma County Alliance Small Business Opportunity Fund!

What is the Sonoma County Alliance Small Business Opportunity Fund?

The Sonoma County Alliance is a coalition of business, agriculture, labor, and individuals organized to encourage a healthy economy, maintain a sound environment, protect private property rights, and promote a responsive political process. 

Understanding that raising capital or finding loans is one of the greatest challenges facing small business owners today, this multi-year small business grant program supports the rejuvenation and growth of the Sonoma County community, prioritizing business owners who traditionally lack access to capital. Grants between $1,000 and $5,000 will be awarded to local businesses looking to make a capital investment in their future.

Sonoma County Alliance Small Business Opportunity Fund Recipients

To qualify, for-profit businesses located in Sonoma County had to be in operation for at least a year and have fewer than 25 employees.  The recipients all have big plans and big dreams and know exactly how to use these funds to help their businesses grow.

Congratulations to all recipients listed below. They’ll each receive a grant between $1,000 and $5,000!
