About the PROMISE Network
Through donations and fundraising, the organization will donate money to businesses who meet their (non-profit) criteria to help them get started or take their business to the next level. According to Krista, it’s all about paying it forward. Recipients will then be asked to donate a percent back to the charity once they are on their feet, so that the non-profit can help support another entrepreneur or business.
