Grants & Awards Update

Change Makers $25,000 Grant
Ashoka’s Change Makers and We Media are awarding $25,000 in seed money to start a nonprofit idea. The project should “inspire a better world through media and technology.” The deadline is January 21, at 6 pm EST. Visit We Media change for more information or to enter the competition.

Here are a couple nontraditional ways to make money for your organization that I’ve recently heard about.

Insider Pages
Raise money through writing a review of a local business. The typical group raises $1,000 to $10,000 in three weeks for an organization. For details visit their website.

Fundit Bar
Raise money by creating a custom toolbar for your charity where you benefit $0.10 per click. There website shows some interesting examples of other nonprofits that have done this. For more information check out their website (thanks Gary Paricio for letting me know- feel free to email him with questions).
