The People’s United Community Foundation, the philanthropic arm of People’s United Bank, announced today that it has awarded a $2,500 grant to SCORE of Portland.

SCORE, a nonprofit association supported by the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) with more than 320 local chapters, is dedicated to helping small businesses achieve their goals through education and mentorship. The funding from the People’s United Community Foundation will support 17 business fundamental workshops for the Portland chapter.

“We appreciate the generous support of People's United Community Foundation to further our mission of fostering business communities through mentoring and education,” said Nancy Strojny, Chapter President of SCORE.  “Together we help entrepreneurs thrive and grow, at all stages of the business cycle.”

“SCORE is a valuable resource in our community,” said Dan Thornton, Officer of People’s United Community Foundation and Southern Maine President for People’s United Bank. “We are pleased to be able to help provide free workshops for entrepreneurs in the greater Portland community.”
