Thank You 100
A CCDA and Silver Lining Partnership
Thank You 100 (TY100) restores, empowers, and invests in under-resourced communities by catalyzing small business growth in those neighborhoods. A partnership of the Christian Community Development Association (CCDA) and Silver Lining, TY100 will give 100 small businesses located in low-income neighborhoods throughout the U.S. a full year of training, support, tools, and resources to help them grow, become more profitable and sustainable, and contribute even more to the vitality of their communities.

- Silver Lining’s online platform for building and implementing a 1-year growth plan
- Ongoing training and support from small business growth experts
- A community of support from other participating businesses owners
