In support of OneSpartanburg, Inc. and the Bringing Back the Burg Small Business Fund, The Spartanburg County Foundation announces a $20,000 grant towards preserving local jobs and investing in the sustainability of Spartanburg County’s racially diverse small businesses. The Bringing Back the Burg Fund is designed to financially assist qualifying small businesses through low interest and forgivable loans.
