IndieNashGiving is a new homegrown movement that takes place in Nashville on Small Business Saturday -- the Saturday after Thanksgiving -- when shoppers are encouraged to support local businesses. This Small Business Saturday, a group of independent Nashville businesses will go one step further and demonstrate the impact shopping local can have on our city.
When you're out and about on Small Business Saturday (November 26, 2016), be sure to visit some of Nashville's best businesses -- from boutiques to salons, from restaurants to coffee shops. Look how far the ripple effect can go when you shop local! You'll get fabulous goods and services; your dollars will fuel the local economy; and you'll have a direct impact on those most in need in our community. Doesn't that feel good?
If you are a Nashville-based independent business owner: Get in on the good karma! Simply commit to donating a portion of your Small Business Saturday sales to a local nonprofit organization of your choice. It's easy to take part in IndieNashGiving:
1. Encourage your customers to patronize your establishment on Small Business Saturday.
2. Commit to donating 5 to 10% of your total gross sales to the local nonprofit you choose.
3. Let the charity know about your commitment. That way, they can let their supporters know that by shopping/dining with you, they benefit, too!
4. Make your donation within a week (by or before December 3) to keep the good momentum rolling.
