If you have questions or concerns about your business, please let us know. We will get through this together!
Red Wing Chamber Champions Sponsorship Opportunities
This year has held unforeseen challenges for all of us in the business community. Some businesses have been able to pivot in their business and prosper and for others it has presented incredible challenges. As a member of the Red Wing Area Chamber of Commerce, you are an important part of the business community that contributes to the quality of life in this area. As a way to support our members, we are announcing an opportunity offering additional help to those businesses who may need it now as we move into 2021.
The Chamber Champions program allows you the opportunity to donate to a fund where 100% of the donation will go towards paying the membership dues for a struggling small business. OR, if renewing your Chamber membership in 2021 is a financial challenge for you, we invite you to confidentially apply for this membership grant.
Funds donated will be used to help offset membership dues for some of our hardest hit businesses. This will help relieve some of the financial stress and enable them to maintain their Chamber membership. The businesses that receive a membership grant will be able to stay connected to the Chamber community during this critical time. We do not want to lose members because of a financial burden beyond their control. The Chamber is a nonprofit organization and our budget is primarily based on our memberships; if our members are struggling, so is our Chamber.
How can you help OR get help?
If you would like to donate funds to help other Chamber members stay connected and maintain their memberships, please see the options below. Your support can either be anonymous as you “Pay It Forward,” or we can recognize your business as a Chamber Champion!

Social Isolation during COVID-19 | Mayo Clinic Q&A Podcast
As the COVID-19 surge sweeps across the U.S., it’s crucial that people stay home and avoid gatherings to reduce community spread of the virus. But for some, that loneliness is becoming an epidemic within the pandemic. Social isolation, especially for people in high-risk health care facilities, like nursing homes, is taking a toll on their mental health. Health care professionals say people have an intuitive desire to gather and seek companionship. Even introverts are struggling with isolation. Anita Bissinger, Mayo Clinic Health System social worker, says people have been innovative and mindful of the fact people are lonely and need to support each other. Social isolation isn’t forever, learn how to combat the seclusion.
