Space still available: “Finding funds for your advocacy” April 30

by Larry Geller

That’s a bit of a tease. The room is gigantic. There’s always room.

You can be empowered

So please don’t hesitate to come, if something makes you mad and you really want to fix it, or if you want to do something that the community needs, you or your organization can learn what kinds of projects attract funding, how to prepare or how to pitch your project, and maybe even where to go. Who knows. It is going to be an interesting panel discussion many different ways.

The meeting will be held Monday by Kokua Council. There’s parking, optional cheap lunch, and of course the chance to ask your question.

The announcement is below.

If only you had that funding, what would it make possible? Maybe you don’t need much, but if you or your organization could find that support… you could accomplish your goal.

Kokua Council’s April meeting might be just what you need. Come to listen, ask questions, and see what you can do.

12:00 Program: "Finding funds for your advocacy" with Nancy Aleck and Samantha Ruiz. Do you have a plan for action that needs an injection of resources to make it happen? Learn how to make your needs known so you can get busy. Alternatively, do you want to support grassroots social change in Hawaii and want to learn where to direct your contribution so it will do the most good?

Nancy Aleck is the Executive Director of the Hawaii People's Fund, a publicly supported community foundation established in 1972 to provide grants to progressive grassroots social change organizations working in Hawai'i. "Our philosophy of community-based strategic philanthropy offers a unique alternative to traditional charitable giving."

Samantha Ruiz organizes Honolulu Soup, a micro-granting dinner meeting supporting creative projects in Honolulu. At the event, attendees eat, talk, share resources, enjoy art, and vote on the project they think benefits the city the most. At the end of the night, the organizers will collect the ballots and the winner goes home with all of the money raised to carry out their project.

1:00 Adjourn
