Small Business
Opportunity Fund

We think big,
but we support small.

The Small Business Opportunity Fund
helps small businesses grow.

This fund was established in 2015 in memory of Ron Gearhart, a longtime school board member, real estate broker and consultant, to offer financial assistance to small businesses in Vandalia and Butler Township.

Some examples of what the $1,500 grant supports:

  • Internships
  • Temporary employees
  • Health and wellness programs
  • Continuing education, such as seminars, webinars, training
  • Business retreats
  • Marketing and advertising
  • New technology such as software
  • Licensing and permits
