In 2020, we stepped forward with Secret and LISC to support women-owned, minority-owned businesses that were disproportionately impacted by the pandemic, committing $1.2M to support women-owned and minority-owned businesses.
One hundred percent of the funds benefitted businesses owned by Black, Indigenous, People of Color, including beauty salons, childcare centers and barbershops.
Through its COVID-19 Rapid Relief & Resiliency Fund, LISC is ensuring small businesses stay in business and continue to contribute to their local economies.

Our support of small businesses is an example of how we’re stepping up to Lead with Love.
