I truly have a heart for supporting BIPOC diverse small businesses in honor of my diverse family, where a servant's heart was always diligently lived out before me.

Isaac R.

I support the Community Impact Fund because when my great-grandparents immigrated to the US they started a small business. We should in a world where all people have an equal opportunity to succeed.

I donate to support local small businesses because even a small amount touches the lives of so many people in our community. Giving to the Community Impact Fund has the added benefit of supporting traditionally underserved entrepreneurs.


At Remitly we are proud to help facilitate the generosity of immigrant communities and believe it is our duty to support our communities too.

Since I have been helped during this COVID Crisis I believe as a Woman-owned and Veteran-Owned business I should donate to help others that may not have been so fortunate.

As a kid, it is so cool to walk around and be able to go into different kinds of stores. I know they are all small businesses and they’re awesome!
