The Big Impact is a new program meant to change the way people engage with philanthropy by creating an engaging, crowdfunded pitch event. What is it? A micro-granting event supporting community, place-based, and entrepreneurial projects that shape our city. Five pre-selected project submissions will be pitched to the audience by individuals, non-profits, and community organizations interested in utilizing the funding to carry out their project.
Attendees pay a fee of $25 to attend the event and vote for their favorite project. The winning pitch will go home with all of the money raised through ticket sales. Complimentary appetizers and a cash bar will be available.
TIME: 6-9 p.m.
DATE: March 21, 2018
WHERE: University Club of Milwaukee
