Williamsburg SCORE was established in 1985 and is one of nearly 400 SCORE Chapters nationwide. The Williamsburg Chapter is located in The Greater Williamsburg Chamber & Tourism Alliance Building at 421 North Boundary Street, Williamsburg, VA, and provides free counseling and business mentoring services within the Greater Williamsburg Area. The Chapter also conducts a small business education program, with seminars and workshops on a variety of topics relevant to the small business community.
Williamsburg SCORE is one of 10 chapters in the Virginia District providing these valuable services; there are 21 active volunteers in the Chapter. In fiscal year 2012, Williamsburg SCORE provided a total of 870 services which was a 25% increase from fiscal year 2011. These services were and are provided to clients both within the small business community as well as those who were anticipating starting a small business.
The Chapter's activities are funded through the national SCORE Association, fees collected from workshop attendees, and contributions from donors. Critical non-cash support is provided by the Greater Williamsburg Chamber and Tourism Alliance, which allows the Chapter use of office space, conference rooms, training facilities, and a receptionist, as well as telephone and computer network services.
