Contribute to the Business Assistance Fund
The Rome Area Chamber of Commerce’s mission, since 1912, has been to provide business advocacy and to promote and encourage economic growth in the Rome Area. With that in mind, the Rome Area Chamber of Commerce Business Assistance Fund (BAF). was launched to assist local businesses that are now at risk of remaining solvent.
To kick off this effort, the Chamber has seeded the BAF with $5,000 and raised nearly another $25,000 from individuals and businesses that are fortunate enough to be able to help. One hundred percent of all contributions will go directly to local struggling small businesses that need help the most.
You can contribute online by clicking on the blue Register button above to log in, and then follow the instructions to check out, or by mailing your check to: Rome Area Chamber of Commerce, 139 W Dominick St., Rome, NY 13440 If you would like your contribution to remain anonymous, please send a confidential email to Info@RomeChamber.com or make note in the comments section on the registration page. Contributions are not tax deductible.
Awards to recipients will range from $500 and up, and our executive committee will evaluate applications and make awards based on the needs and funding available.
Thank you for your support of our local businesses.
