The folks at Yelp not only aggregate people’s opinions on local businesses, but they also support nonprofits through the Yelp Foundation.
“A lot of people already know that Yelp has a huge impact on consumers and local businesses around the world. An average of 117 million unique visitors use the site every month in 23 different countries. Fewer people know that the non-profit Yelp Foundation was created in 2011 to find new ways of helping consumers and local businesses. The Foundation’s mission is to support community literacy and small business growth by making grants to local non-profits which are actively engaged in those initiatives.”

We’re thrilled that Yelp has awarded us one of their three grants this year!
