About Us

Since our founding in 2008, the Staunton Creative Community Fund has  been dedicated helping small businesses.  We serve as the local hub for entrepreneurial innovation and bring together the talent, creativity, information, funding, and resources that grow a vibrant local economy.

Starting a business is challenging. The Fund can help you navigate the pitfalls, detours, highs, and lows of starting or expanding a small business. In a world of cold calculations and high-interest loans, we are a safe place for dreamers and schemers to imagine the possibilities, ask questions, and get the funding they need in order to succeed. We are your team.

While based in Staunton, we’ve continued to grow and now serve the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia


To grow the economy in the Shenandoah Valley by providing support to entrepreneurs and small businesses through our loan, education, and technical assistance programs.


The Shenandoah Valley is a region that has economically, culturally, and socially vibrant communities where entrepreneurs and small businesses thrive.
