Vistaprint, Boston Celtics, NAACP Announced Formation of Power Forward Grant For Small Minority Business

Vistaprint, the Boston Celtics Shamrock Foundation & NAACP have announced the formation of the Power Forward Grant. The grant will provide $25,000 grants to Black-owned small businesses across New England.

In addition to funds, the Power Forward Small Business Grant program will provide opportunities to be featured on national co-branded platforms, as well as receiving design and marketing assistance customized to their specific needs to help their business grow and thrive.

The launch of the Power Forward Small Business Grant is the first collaborative initiative under this partnership and an extension of Boston Celtics United for Social Justice, a multi-focus commitment to addressing racial injustice and social inequities in the Greater Boston area.

Qualified applicants must be Black-owned small businesses with 1 to 25 employees and be based in Massachusetts, Maine, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Vermont, or select areas of Connecticut. Applicants should be able to demonstrate the impact their small business has on their greater community and showcase how they intend to use the $25,000 grant award.
