Merchants Fund

Business Stabilization and Loan Match Grants

Posted on August 14, 2017

Friday, September 15, 2017 is the Fall Grant Cycle Deadline. The Merchants Fund (TMF) has two core grant making areas for businesses that have been legally established for at least three years in Philadelphia:

Business Stabilization Grants up to $10,000 to help small businesses remain stable, viable and grow in the face of economic challenges or to respond to opportunities. We do not make grants for working capital. Grants must be spent by August 31, 2017.

Business Loan Match Grants up to $20,000 to match accredited government programs or bank loans at least dollar for dollar ($20,000 minimum loan matched by a $20,000 grant). This is a more competitive program because the dollar amount is higher. TMF does not make loans. Grants must be spent by August 31, 2017.
