2023 TIBA Give Back Local Award


TIBA’s Give Back Local Award is designed to support the members of TIBA by providing matching funds up to $1500 per business for services that impact their business such as (but not limited to) HR or tax consulting, marketing services, printing services, purchase of equipment, accounting services – whatever it is that your business needs.

Eligibility and Selection Criteria

Attention all TIBA Members…you are going to want to read this!

The Topeka Independent Business Association is launching the TIBA Give Back Local Award for the third year in a row. But wait, we have revamped the program to help even more businesses!

Have you been wanting to invest in a marketing campaign? Gain employee retention advice from an HR professional? Maybe even purchase some new equipment but haven’t had the funds to do it? Well, TIBA is here to help!

EVERY TIBA member is eligible to both request funding and to be a service used with the funds!

If a TIBA member does not offer the services you’re needing, we will work with other local businesses to get you the support/services you are seeking!
