US Bank Foundation Stands with North Coast Small Businesses

The U.S. Bank Foundation has stepped forward again this year to provide critical funding to the North Coast Small Business Center (SBDC).
The “Workforce Education & Economic Prosperity” focus area of the Foundation’s Community Possible grantmaking program supports every aspect of SBDC’s work—from small business technical assistance to financial literacy for business owners and self-employed people.
“Like SBDC, we’re a community institution with national reach,” explained Mandy L Marquez, Vice President, U.S. Bank & Community RM Team Manager.“Though U.S. Bank brings the power of national pricing and services – in every other way we think of ourselves as members of our community, responsible to our neighbors. We act on these values by making sure Humboldt’s small business owners have the best possible leg up to make their dreams possible.
North Coast SBDC Director Leila Roberts added, “SBDC brings in more than $200,000 in state and federal resources to the North Coast for small business training and consulting. But we don’t get to use it unless the community provides matching funds. We are thrilled that U.S. Bank Foundation has stepped up for small business in Humboldt, Del Norte, and Adjacent Tribal Lands.”
