Empowering Small Business Communities- A Giving Campaign by Presta

Presta Gives $5,000 to SCORE Foundation

This November, we're taking a step further in fulfilling our mission by launching a campaign to share valuable resources, small business success stories, available funding, and spotlight some of the amazing lenders out there.

We've chosen SCORE Foundation as the organization we want to highlight and we will be donating $5,000 this month.

We want to help amplify their message as leaders in fostering vibrant small business communities across the country.

SCORE Foundation

The SCORE Foundation is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization that serves as the philanthropic arm of SCORE, America’s premier source of free and confidential business advice to entrepreneurs and small business owners.

The Foundation facilitates individual contributions and corporate sponsorships that enable SCORE to expand the reach and enhance the success rate of our small business community through free mentors, tools, resources, workshops and educational programs.

SCORE: A Pillar of Small Business Success

SCORE plays a major role in bolstering the local economy and aiding small businesses across the country. As the nation’s largest network of volunteer business mentors, SCORE has been a catalyst for business and job creation for decades. 

They serve a broad spectrum of clients from different backgrounds and industries. SCORE’S commitment to diversity and inclusivity in supporting American small businesses and entrepreneurs is rooted into their mission. This approach aligns seamlessly with our mission at Presta, where we value inclusivity and accessibility in all our services.

Here's a closer look at their incredible impact:

SCORE's dedication to empowering entrepreneurs from diverse backgrounds was strengthened with the SCORE for ALL initiative. This program was developed to provide tailored resources and mentoring to entrepreneurs facing unique challenges. Some fun facts about SCORE’s success can be seen her:

National Impact

  • 30,434 New Businesses Started
  • 112,570 Total Jobs Created 
  • 55% “in-business” clients reported an increase in revenue

SCORE’s Client Base

  • 64% Women
  • 46% Minorities
  • 9% Veterans

It's a testament to SCORE's adaptive and inclusive approach to mentorship, an ethos that resonates deeply with us at Presta.

Moreover, SCORE's on-demand small business training and community engagement initiatives have made a significant impact. Their user-friendly website, with its 24/7 access to training and educational materials, catered to over five million visitors in 2022. This level of engagement demonstrates their broad reach and commitment to providing resources when and where they're needed most.

Lastly, the heart of SCORE's success lies in its dedicated volunteers. These experienced business professionals from diverse backgrounds offer their time and expertise to help small business owners. Their passion for aiding small business success is a reflection of the entrepreneurial spirit we foster at Presta.

A Shared Vision for Small Business Growth

Our donation to the SCORE Foundation is more than just financial support; it's an investment in a shared vision. Both Presta and SCORE understand the unique challenges faced by small businesses. Our hope is that by supporting SCORE's mentorship and educational resources we can help support small businesses at every stage of their journey.
