Sam's Club is a regular stop for many small business owners
Sam's Club has launched a new program called Giving Made Simple that should be near and dear to many entrepreneurs. The program supports education and entrepreneurship, as Sam's Club believes they are essential to the growth of our economy and communities.
Giving Made Simple is a online voting campaign that allows Sam's Club members and associates to determine how Sam's Club will distribute $4 million in charitable contributions to eight selected nonprofit organizations dedicated to youth education and entrepreneurship.
The organizations that were selected to participate in this program are Kiva, Community Reinvestment Fund, USA (CRF USA), Corporation for Enterprise Development (CFED), Accion USA, Junior Achievement, YMCA, Girls, Inc. and Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship (NFTE).
Sam's Club members and associates can log onto http://www.samsclub.com/giving, and vote for the non-profit organization they would like to see win the largest donation.
