LOCAL COMPANIES DONATE $100,000 TO HELP BUSINESS INCUBATOR PROGRAM
PREPARE ENTREPRENEURS FOR TAKE-OFF
The Launch Pad business incubator provides resources for underserved and
underrepresented communities in business.
JACKSON, MI, July 29, 2021 -The Michigan Credit Union Foundation, TRUE Community Credit Union, and Henry Ford Allegiance Health have joined resources to give $100,000 to The Launch Pad, a mixed-use business incubator program in Jackson, MI. The Launch Pad empowers local, neighborhood, and service-based businesses and provides resources, education, and space to serve underserved and underrepresented communities in business.
Henry Ford Allegiance Health will provide $50,000, TRUE Community Credit Union will contribute $30,000, and The Michigan Credit Union Foundation has awarded a $20,000 Community Enrichment Grant. The funds will help with The Launch Pad's start-up costs to provide training resources and enrich the lives of countless underrepresented and disadvantaged individuals looking for a resource and support for their businesses.
Beth Troost, Executive Director of Michigan Credit Union Foundation, stated, "As the Launch Pad will increase financial inclusion and small business support, it is a perfect fit for Michigan Credit Union Foundation funding goals. This grant amplifies TRUE Community Credit Union's commitment and investment in community partnerships to improve the financial well-being of underserved entrepreneurs."
Chrissy Siders, President/CEO of TRUE Community Credit Union, said, "The Launch Pad is just one example of the progressive change coming to our community in the space of equity. As leaders in this community, it is our responsibility to lean into the conversation, take direction, provide authentic support, and allocate resources effectively to change the narrative in our community. We are committed to coming alongside advocates for change by bridging the gaps and creating opportunities. We are ecstatic to support The Launch Pad with financial and human resources and to have secured the Community Enrichment Grant from the Michigan Credit Union Foundation. We can't wait to see Jackson grow through the establishment of more small businesses!"
The Launch Pad will offer events, education, funding, mentorship, and space to its clients. It will provide a physical location with a defined set of services to individuals and small businesses to meet various economic and socio-economic needs such as employment and wealth creation, support for small businesses, and promoting innovation and knowledge transfer.
"We want to help business owners achieve their goals of breaking into the market," said Daniel Mahoney, The Launch Pad Owner and Community Activist. "We hope to become the preferred brand for start-ups for the local, neighborhood, and service-based businesses."
Henry Ford Allegiance Health provides an ongoing commitment to improving the health and well-being of the communities served will continue to make a substantial investment in community education, wellness, and prevention services.
"Our organization has a deep commitment to seeing everyone in our community thrive," said Paula Autry, President and CEO, Henry Ford Allegiance Health. "We hope this latest investment in black entrepreneurship here in our community will spark economic benefits for those who have experienced the greatest barriers to successfully owning and managing their own business."
TRUE Community Credit Union is honored to provide resources for this program as we honor our TRUE commitment to our community.
TRUE Community Credit Union, Consumers Energy and Michigan Saves partner to offer a new promotion to help for Jackson residents.
