Members of our 2013 Full Circle Fund Rising Leaders Program are hosting an Idea Jamathon on Saturday, June 8, 2013 in San Francisco, where a select group of nonprofits and social entrepreneurs will get a full day of pro-bono consulting assistance from our members, and one organization will receive $5,000!
The Rising Leaders have selected eight causes to receive day-long brainstorming/working sessions with Rising Leaders and other Full Circle Fund members. This opportunity will help potential grant partners gain entry to the Full Circle Fund community, or be welcomed back (for former partners).
The social entrepreneur/representative from the nonprofit organization must be able to attend in person on June 8. Possible areas for assistance include:
* Marketing/messaging session to enhance your pitch and collateral
* Social media strategy and campaign development
* Development strategy sessions
* How to use technology to optimize your reach
* Advisory or executive board development brainstorm
* How to scale your product or idea
