THE BELIEVE IN BRECK FUND
The Believe in Breck Fund is a program Breck United has set up to support locally owned businesses in Breckinridge County through the COVID 19 pandemic.
There are two ways to contribute to the Believe in Breck Fund.
First, we will be selling Believe in Breck t-shirts (designed by our wonderful friends at Gentry's), the proceeds from which will go into the fund. This is a great way to get involved without significant investment and lets you physically show your support! Shirts will be $20 a piece, which includes the cost to have them shipped to you (because we want you to stay healthy at home). Click this link to check out the order form.
If you're interested in making a larger contribution, we encourage you to do so! Breck United is a 501(c)3 meaning that donations made to us are tax deductible. You can donate by either sending a check to Breckinridge County United at PO Box 206, Hardinsburg, KY 40143 or follow the link above to donate through Paypal. Please note that if you choose to donate over Paypal there are fees associated. If you mail a check, please note in the memo section that it is for the Believe in Breck Fund.
Donors to the fund will be published on our website and Facebook page (unless you would prefer to remain anonymous - if so just let us know)! We are very optimistic about the good this can do for our county, but we will not be able to achieve it without your help. Our small businesses have supported many endeavors around our county for years and we hope that those of you whose incomes are not affected at this time will return the favor now.
HOW TO APPLY FOR ASSISTANCE:
If you are a locally owned small business, please click here to read instructions for how to apply for assistance. Please note that our ability to help may be limited by the amount of money we raise for the fund and the duration of the crisis. In order to allow ourselves time to prepare, we will not be accepting applications until April 1.

Our office, shared with the Chamber of Commerce, is open 10:00 - 4:00 Tuesday through Friday. We know that those hours may not fit your schedule, so we are happy to meet with you by appointment to discuss your small business or your site selection needs.
