In honor of National Volunteer Appreciation Week, Pacific Community Ventures and our Small Business community would like to offer a massive shoutout to you and all of our amazing family of volunteer advisors.
Because of your efforts, PCV’s Business Advising program was able to empower over 1,000 small companies across America last year, during one of the most daunting years in our country’s history.
PCV business advisors like you volunteered 12,840 hours in 2020 – that’s $2,503,800 worth of free advice and coaching (according to Taproot’s industry standard of $195 average hourly value of pro bono service.)
You also made an impact in work closing racial and gender wealth gaps: 84% of the 1,068 small business owners we work with are women or people of color.
We — and the small business owners you’ve worked with — appreciate every phone call, email, and piece of advice. We’re looking forward to helping even more companies grow, thrive, and benefit our communities in 2021.
THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH!
