Wake County Partnerships & Projects

Rally Fund For Small Businesses:  Financial awards as gifts at $2,000 each to help businesses stay in business.

The Rally Fund for Small Businesses was created to provide financial support and relief for Wake Tech's Small Business Center clients and graduates of the LaunchWakeCounty program.

WHO DO WE HELP: Our small business clients represent all stages of business development, and all 12 Wake County municipalities.   Most have 15 or fewer employees. 

HOW DO WE HELP:  The small financial awards are used for everything from paying rent on business space to creating websites and buying needed equipment to helping to meet payroll. 

WHEN DO WE HELP:  We distribute awards in the spring and fall.  Every donation helps.  Please join our donor board by making a donation today..
