About The Small Business Hardship Fund

The Small Business Hardship Fund (SBHF) is a local non-profit organization in Sonoma County, CA. It was founded in May 2020 by a Latino small business owner during the midst of the pandemic and turmoil on our local business community. It was very difficult to see many local business owners lose their dream & livelihood and not be able to do anything about it. The SBHF was founded specifically to assist small businesses with hardships and to help prepare them for future emergencies, so that they may be in a better position to survive. We assist small businesses with less than 15 employees experiencing hardships with funds and emergency resources to assist them towards sustainability. Our focus is the needs of small businesses, their sustainability and growth.

During the public health crisis, continued economic challenges, and beyond, our dire mission is to assist small businesses with immediate and basic operational expenses by providing:

  • Mini-grants for basic operational expenses.
  • Small business emergency resources such as personal protection equipment, cleaning kits and emergency preparedness kits.
  • Funding for training/educational workshops that will benefit the overall well-being of the business, staff and patrons.
  • Resources for sustainability and growth of our local small businesses.
  • Reduced fee opportunities intended to help small businesses participate as an exhibitor/vendor at small business community events as well as at our large Business & Community Expo on Saturday, July 30, 2022.
  • Collaborating opportunities for businesses and other organizations to raise funds for causes for the benefit of our community needs.
