Small businesses are being hit hard by mandatory closures right now. In response, we have started a solidarity fund to support small business owners and workers in our neighborhood of Prospect Heights, Brooklyn.
Over 40 businesses have signed up so far to receive aid via this fund. 100% of funds raised will be shared among these businesses, who are asked to distribute donations equally among all staff.
For an updated list of businesses that have signed up, please see our INFO PAGE .
We are encouraging those who live in the area to chip in to this mutual aid fund to help cover lost wages during this difficult time. Please consider donating the amount you might usually spend at your local bars, restaurants, shops, salons, yoga studios, etc.

This is a grassroots effort and a small fund based on trust. We are not affiliated with any government programs and we’re not a nonprofit. We’re just neighbors who want to help out our community.
We are acting locally and quickly in the hopes of maximizing aid fast!
