We believe that business ownership is the ultimate socio-economic equalizer, but 80% of new businesses fail.

We provide grants to small businesses enabling them to get the critical services needed for their businesses to grow!

How Does It Work?

Bizanthropy will be “funding the gap” between what small businesses and nonprofits can afford to pay, and the amount vetted service providing vendors are willing to accept. This is to ensure that services critical to business growth and stability are accessible.

We help marginalized small businesses gain access to services critical to their survival and growth.

Core Values


We acknowledge that marginalized people have different circumstances and that we must make resources and opportunities accessible to ensure they reach an equal outcome.


We believe in building a strategic cooperative between small business owners and professional service vendors, not hand-outs… as both parties have skin in the game and contribute what they are able for the services rendered.


We ensure that professional services are provided as committed by qualified, vetted vendors. We share status updates on beneficiary progress with our donors and supporters.


Impact ripple effect is magnified due to partnership between vendor small businesses and client small businesses both winning.


10,000+ small businesses that would’ve been a statistic of failure have the tools and services they need to survive, grow, and have a ripple impact on their communities and the economy.
