Help Chambers Help Small Businesses

All six Kitsap Chambers of Commerce have been working together since the shutdown to support ALL local businesses, not just their members. During this unprecedented blow to our local economy, our chambers have been providing the information and tools that our local businesses need to access emergency funding, to reopen safely and continue to operate safely in the weeks and months to come.

However, as 501c6 non-profits, chambers have not been included in access to most of that same federal and state emergency funding. Their operating income is derived from membership dues and fundraising events, both of which have been hugely impacted by COVID-19. They have continued their very important work for and on behalf of local businesses in their respective communities, but fear what a decline in membership and cancellation of events will mean for their ability to continue to provide support to distressed businesses.

The Kitsap Small Business Response Fund is a joint effort of Kitsap Community Foundation and all Kitsap Chambers of Commerce, including Port Orchard, Bremerton, Silverdale, Poulsbo, Kingston, and Bainbridge Island.

The Kitsap Small Business Response Fund will allow chambers to keep providing education and other support related to COVID-19 to all local businesses, including current guidelines for specific industries, PPE resources, and procurement, and participation signage to promote their own efforts. By donating to the Kitsap Small Business Response Fund, you will help us make sure our local businesses have the information and tools they need to recover and thrive. Help us help our local businesses by supporting the Kitsap Small Business Response Fund.

The money raised will be donated to the food banks in January, to help each agency restock the shelves after the holiday season and start 2020 in a positive way. Thank you for your support from the entire staff of the Kitsap Sun.

Our aim is simple. To assist with Saving Pets In Crisis Everywhere.

  Donate The Untold Story: Aboriginal Women Leave their Traditional Territories for Bainbridge Island
The Indipino Oral History documentary focuses on the untold stories of the mixed-race children of Aboriginal mothers and Filipino fathers who migrated to Bainbridge Island pre- and post-World War II. Now adults, they recall the psychological and emotional impact of racism and prejudice and growing up in a household where both parents suffered from unresolved historical trauma. Their mothers were victims of Canada's forced assimilation, taken from their families as early as 5 years old and raised by Catholic nuns and priests in Indian Residential Schools. Their fathers witnessed the evacuation of the Island's Japanese American community and feared they would be next. Despite the obvious challenges of merging cultures, the Indipino community today demonstrates not only resilience but a great sense of pride in their bicultural identity.
