Unleash Generosity Giving Tuesday

GivingTuesday is a global movement, unleashing the power of radical generosity to transform communities and the world. 

Even in times of economic uncertainty, we each have a deep reserve of generosity, which we can deploy in myriad ways to make a difference--your time, kindness, skills, and voice are all things you can give in addition to charitable donations.

Since 1964, SCORE has provided entrepreneurs with the education, training, and resources they need to start and grow successful small businesses. Each year, SCORE’s volunteer corps of 10,000 expert mentors serves 400,000 small business owners through virtual or in-person mentoring sessions and educational workshops.


This year, during the continuing national health crisis, small businesses needed help more than ever before. Many businesses were forced to pivot their operations in a shifting landscape, dramatically revamp their marketing plans, apply for loans, or make difficult decisions about employees.


The SCORE Foundation provided funding for SCORE’s Small Business Resilience program to support these business owners when they need us most. This platform allows us to offer our mentoring and educational services through virtual platforms. Clients can easily access the pandemic-related information, guidance, and resources they need to survive and thrive.

Since its conception, the Small Business Resilience program has served more than 830,000 people. More than 4.2 million entrepreneurs have visited our website seeking educational content, and SCORE has hosted virtual workshops for approximately 500,000 attendees.

As the pandemic stretches on, SCORE remains committed to developing programs and resources focused on serving sectors within the small business community that has been most negatively impacted. This includes Black-owned businesses, Hispanic-owned, women-owned, and other underrepresented communities.

Your contribution to the SCORE Foundation will help us continue to be there for the business owners who depend on us. Every dollar will be used to create valuable and timely resources that small business owners need to navigate the significant challenges they’re facing and keep their doors open. Please make a donation today.

We need your help now more than ever.  Can we count on you?
