FuseDSM has a limited ability to fund donation requests for projects and events. Our stated mission revolves around promoting and bettering our business community. We have created these policies and criteria as a guide for those interested in making requests for donations. The Board of Directors will set a donation budget for each year. All projects must fit within our scope of purpose, fulfill needs in our footprint, and adhere to our Mission. Check back later for the Charitable Donation Form, as all grants have been dispursed in 2019. We are working on a new process for grants in 2020. Stay tuned!
Our organization provides the spark and energy every business needs to ignite growth and prosperity through purposeful connections. Our brand promise is to provide effective resources, knowledge and passionate advocacy to local businesses. We work tirelessly for our members to generate dynamic business opportunities unlike those found anywhere in the city.
