Big Sky EDA to Receive Bank Foundation Community Grant
Big Sky Economic Development (BSED) will receive a $12,000 U.S. Bank Foundation Community Possible grant to be directed toward financial education for small businesses and workforce development initiatives.
The U.S. Bank Foundation is committed to making Community Possible through the areas of Work, Home and Play to create lasting change. The foundation does this by focusing on meaningful impact in the communities it serves and through meaningful partnerships with local nonprofits, like Big Sky Economic Development.
Bill Davies, U.S. Bank Regional President, said “We know that a strong small business environment and an educated workforce ensures the prosperity of our communities. We provide grant support to programs and organizations that help small businesses thrive, allow people to succeed in the workforce, provide pathways to higher education and gain greater financial literacy. Big Sky Economic Development is a tremendous advocate for small business and workforce development, and we can’t think of a better partner to help us fulfill this work.”
“This grant will allow us to continue our mission of helping small businesses start and grow in our region and allow us to continue to offer key programs related to workforce development,” said Steve Arveschoug, Executive Director for BSED.
