Peoplefund creates economic opportunity and financial stability for underserved people by providing access to capital, education, and resources to build healthy small businesses. To that end, Peoplefund seeks to create social and economic justice by empowering women, veteran, minority and low income entrepreneurs in the worlds of nonprofits, small businesses, and start up organizations throughout the state of Texas.
For the clients we serve, a little goes a long way. $10 provides office supplies for a veteran enrolled in our PeopleVET program. $25 provides a textbook to an entrepreneur in our PeopleStart program, which helps the small businesses that keep Austin weird every day. $50 covers meals for a participant in our PeopleSpark education program, which elevates minority business owners in low income areas who attend class at night so they can run their business during the day. $100 covers service fees for a client so they can gain capital needed to create jobs. $250 purchases accounting software for a small business owner so they can keep track of their finances.
