What is the mission behind Empowering Our Community or EOC? Empowering our Community is a platform that allows individuals, non-profits and businesses in the Cedar Rapids metro area to partner and be EMPOWERED. Visit our website at www.eoc.team

If I’m a business, why should I consider being part of the EOC business network? Businesses may join the EOC business network at no cost for the next 12 months. Your business will have your contact information (name, address, email, website and phone number) along with a description of your business placed on the business directory of the EOC website. Each business will have the opportunity to promote their services, along with discounts to EOC members. These discounts may be changed throughout the year at no cost and may be shared through social media outlets. Visit our current list of participating businesses and discounts at www.eoc.team/incentives

How do non-profits and individuals fit into the EOC story? A non-profit may raise funds for their organization by offering a custom EOC Empowerment Card. These cards can be purchased with a minimum order of 200 cards for $200. We recommend that these cards be sold for $20 each. All proceeds are retained by the local non-profit and individuals that buy the card will have access to continual discounts from 40+ businesses in the Cedar Rapids metro area. Cards have a 12 month expiration based on when the cards were originally purchased by the participating non-profit. To know more about starting a campaign visit www.eoc.team/campaigns

Why should you consider being part of the EOC network? Three great pillars of any community are individuals, non-profits and businesses. When all are working in unison, there is great confluence and that momentum is hard to stop. EOC’s infrastructure and team of advisors wants to help continue that environment where individuals, non-profits and businesses can work as a team to Empower Our Community right here in the Cedar Rapids metro area.
