A 501(c)3 nonprofit volunteer organization, SCORE’s mission is to provide free and very low cost educational programs and services to new entrepreneurs and growing small businesses. Chester & Delaware County SCORE relies on the expertise of a dedicated corps of volunteers who give thousands of hours annually to help local businesses succeed.
Typically, 70 percent of small businesses fail within the first five years. Major contributing factors are a lack of planning and expertise in key functional areas. SCORE’s counseling and educational programs not only help increase a new business’s chance of survival but also its likelihood of creating new jobs and contributing to the local economy.
SCORE makes an important contribution to the empowerment of women. A significant portion of clients and workshop attendees are aspiring women entrepreneurs.
Every dollar of your contribution has a true value of about $50 in services provided by SCORE volunteers.
