Give the Gift of Jobs in 2012!

"Over 50% of Americans own or work for a small business and it is important to support these business owners and entrepreneurs across the country."
-Christopher Chan, Special Advisor for Public Engagement at the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA)

Thank you again to our supporters who have made a lasting impact in the "Give the Gift of Jobs" campaign. As the above quote illustrates, a healthy local (and national) economy requires empowered entrepreneurs and a sustainable small business community.

Our latest video features three aspiring women business owners discussing their dreams and how Empowerment Group's Entrepreneurship Training Course helped them get on the right path.

There is still time to help. We would be grateful for your help to fund 20 scholarships for low-income women small business owners to attend the course in February 2012. We ask you to contribute to their future in three ways:

1. Participate in our IndieGoGo campaign to contribute to the success of women business owners.
2. Click on PayPal and donate to our Women's Business Center-Scholarship Fund.
3. Pass this on to family, friends, foundations, and funders.

The Women's Business Center's Scholarship Fund ensures greater opportunities for aspiring and seasoned local women small business owners. The WBC is a vital part of Empowerment Group's vision to empower Philadelphia small business owners with no to low-cost workshops, personalized action plans, our Women Entrepreneurs' Circle and our signature Entrepreneurship Week -- celebrating community businesses and the entrepreneurs behind them.

Empowerment Group's bottom line is to create positive, lasting change for our clients, their families and their communities. With your donation, you fuel their dreams and our economy.

Thank you, and Happy New Year!

The EG Team
