MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. -- May 7, 2013

WHO:        Intuit, Inc.
             
             Intuit announced the first grant recipients in its “Growing
             Strong” Love Our Local Business program, which is granting 15
             wishes of up to $5,000 value to deserving small businesses across
             the country. Green Bay-based Centerpiece LLC, Wisconsin’s first
WHAT:        autism treatment center, received sensory integration equipment
             that will help children during therapy sessions, while Beaumont,
             Texas-based Cookies for Kaiser received a commercial mixer to
             make more dog treats for animal rescue organizations. Fans can
             vote and small business owners can still submit wishes up to the
             May 12, 2013 entry deadline.
             
             Based on a September 2012 Intuit Small Business Survey, 87
             percent of small business owners said their businesses are
WHY:         struggling to survive, and forty-seven percent of respondents
             said a $5,000 infusion would significantly help or even save
             their businesses.
             
             Based on these findings, Intuit kicked off the Love Our Local
             Business program in the holiday season of 2012 by granting 15
             small business owners wishes valued at $5,000—money that often
             meant the difference between surviving or thriving. Thousands of
             small businesses submitted their wishes. This time, Intuit is
             doing the same with a new group of small businesses, granting 15
             wishes May 6-12. To date, Intuit has awarded more than $1.1
             million to help small businesses grow.
