The National LGBT Chamber of Commerce (NGLCC), the exclusive certifying body for LGBTQ-owned businesses, and Anheuser-Busch have announced that they are renewing their partnership for a third year to continue fostering economic opportunities and advancements for LGBTQ+ business owners, including entrepreneurs that are vital to the success of the hospitality industry.

 Anheuser-Busch and Bud Light will donate $200,000 to support NGLCC programs from certification to small business education, as well its Communities of Color Initiative (CoCi), an initiative designed to support the growth and success of minority-owned LGBTQ+ businesses through certification, scholarships, and business development.

 "Our ongoing partnership with Anheuser-Busch and its brands has allowed us to meaningfully increase consistent support behind the LGBTQ+ business community we represent in addition to the NGLCC Communities of Color Initiative that empowers, supports and fosters growth for our minority LGBTQ+ business owners and entrepreneurs,” said an NGLCC spokesperson. “We’re proud to continue to work alongside Anheuser-Busch to make an impact on the businesses and people that play such a vital role in our communities.”

 Anheuser-Busch is committed to the programs and partnerships it has forged over 30 years with organizations to drive economic prosperity across a number of communities, including the LGBTQ+ community. This support continues today through partnerships with the NGLCC and more than 50 local community organizations and events across the country this June and beyond.
