Over the years, ACEnet has been committed to growing our regional economy. In this season of charitable giving, there is, at this very moment, an opportunity for you to join in our commitment. Please take a moment to see how you can be a part of something new and very special.

A large part of what gives our region its character is our locally owned and operated businesses. Supporting these entrepreneurs is exactly at the heart of ACEnet’s mission. In the midst of these challenging economic times, we, at ACEnet, have been provided with an innovative solution to help lower-income community members start or strengthen their small business. We want you to join us today, in taking advantage of this opportunity for our clients and your neighbors.

At this moment, we have two Ohio partners who are committed to providing small business grants and matching savings to ACEnet clients in the coming year. ACEnet will support these businesses with financial education and assistance to register with the State of Ohio. The program will allow these businesses to open a savings account with a local financial institution, resulting in our partners providing up to $3,250 into these accounts. Now all that is missing is you! Your support and commitment will help us develop and implement this program and bring these resources to our area at such a critical time.

Please take a minute to watch this short video with ACEnet’s Executive Director, Larry Fisher, to hear about this program aimed at lower income entrepreneurs that you can help us support.
