Business Education Foundation Receives $500 Walmart Foundation Community Grant

Posted By Nicole Shumate, Arizona Small Business Association, Thursday, June 9, 2016

ASBA is honored and excited to announce that the Business Education Foundation (BEF), a business related party to ASBA, has been awarded a $500 community grant from The Walmart Foundation.

The goal of the Business Education Foundation is to advance the spirit of entrepreneurism by engaging and strengthening small business in Arizona. By providing timely education, hands-on mentoring and necessary resources and assistance, the BEF helps cultivate business owners’ creative vision and helps to transform them into a solid financial future for business owners, their family, their future employees and ultimately, their community, for a stronger Arizona. 

When asked what made ASBA the top recipient for the grant, Walmart store manager, Krissy Lujan, said “Your submission was unique and stood out to me.” She continued, “When choosing a recipient, I want to pick someone who benefits the community, someone who we haven’t helped before and someone that is in our community”.

Krissy expressed to ASBA that not only is it important to thoroughly review applications submitted, but that she strongly felt how important it was for Walmart to truly believe in the mission and values of those organizations awarded. 

Rick Murray, ASBA CEO, expressed “ASBA’s mission is to be the statewide resource for small businesses in Arizona.  The BEF, in collaboration with ASBA, allows us to further educate small business owners, creating opportunities of success.  We are grateful that The Walmart Foundation continues to support our vision through partnership and individual store support.”

We look forward to taking the next step with this grant to educate, energize and empower entrepreneurs.
