Skillastics is 1 of 12 Businesses Chosen to Receive Chase/LivingSocial Grant
Today, Chase and LivingSocial announced the 12 small businesses that will receive grants of $250,000 each through Mission: Small BusinessSM, a grant program designed to increase awareness of the important role small businesses play in local communities. Supported by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, nearly 70,000 small businesses registered and 3.1 million consumers showed their support by voting for their favorite small businesses.
Participating small businesses from across the country were evaluated based upon their applications which were required to demonstrate a feasible growth plan, creativity, overall passion for their business and the potential to make a positive impact within the local community.
“I am grateful to Chase and LivingSocial in recognizing the value Skillastics offers in fighting a national crisis like childhood obesity,” says Sandy Slade, President and Founder of Skillastics. “This grant and future corporate sponsorships will allow us to reach out on a local, regional, and national level, so that EVERY school in this country has the resources to implement a Skillastics program.
