Support Our Small Businesses Today

Bridge to Rebuilding Fund Will Match Donations Up To $50,000

North River Commission has partnered with local donors to create the Bridge to Rebuilding Fund designed for rapid assistance to small businesses that contribute to the retail vibrancy of East Albany Park in their rebuilding after the severe negative impacts caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The lead donor has challenged North River Commission and our communities by providing a match up to $50,000. Your donation today to help rebuild the vibrancy of our own business districts will be doubled and double the positive impact that we make together.

Thank you!

Update, June 16th: Matching donations of $12,087 have been made already, including a $5000 donation by ALBANK and another $5000 donation from CIBC. Those donations raise the total businesses receiving grants to 12 in this round. Let's keep it going. Thank you everyone!

Make your matching gift today to help our small businesses rebuild. Thank you.
