Crowdfunding site set up to help BSD

June 5, 2020

The Birmingham Shopping District (BSD) announced it has created a crowdfunding website for citizens to help raise funds to buy personal protective equipment (PPE) for Birmingham small businesses affected by the coronavirus pandemic.

The BSD, along with Oakland County, has provided numerous Birmingham businesses with an initial supply of PPE starter kits. However, as businesses begin to fully reopen to the public, there is an increasing need for additional supplies. The PPE supplies purchased through the crowdfunding site will be provided to service-related businesses in Birmingham, such as retailers, restaurants, salons and spas.

Oakland County Main Street has announced it will match up to $4,000 of funds raised on the site. The Community House has generously donated $5,000 to kick off the crowdfunding campaign.


“With the stay home order lifted and businesses reopening, we know there is great need for large supplies of PPE,” said Ingrid Tighe, executive diirector of the BSD. “We appreciate the community’s support as we work to provide businesses with materials they need to keep their businesses clean and safe.”
