Event Details

On Saturday, June 28th, Full Circle Fund's Rising Leaders will present the second annual Idea Jamathon at change.org. The Rising Leaders are a cohort of young professionals within the Full Circle Fund membership; the group pioneered the Jamathon as a collaborative impact model to advance social enterprises outside of Full Circle Fund's grant portfolio.

The event brings together Full Circle Fund Members, community partners, and social entrepreneurs for an afternoon of networking & hands-on impact consulting. We will work with eight organizations outside of our current grant portfolio to workshop solutions to a pressing challenge in just two hours. At the end of the day, we will leverage grant dollars through a flash giving circle where YOU can fund the solutions you care about!

CHALK/Youth Funding Youth Initiative
How can we develop a that brand speaks to the impact our program has made and will continue to make? 

Gray Area Foundation for the Arts
How we can we create a call for members for our cultural incubator that's inclusive of the arts and tech sectors?

HandUp
What's the best way for a for-profit socially driven company to enter the foundation space?

Made in a Free World
How can we best leverage our relationships and government ties to market to large businesses?  

Pangea Legal Services
How can we use technology to promote effective and interactive learning for our clients before  meetings?

San Francisco Urban Agriculture Alliance

The School Fund
What standards and metrics will help us maximize impact? How do we message this? 

uAspire
How can we adjust our revenue plan for more rapid growth to meet the need for college affordability support?


How It Works

At the event, each organization will share a brief verbal pitch to introduce their organization's work and challenge. Then, our audience will self-select into working groups to brainstorm solutions to this challenge in just a few hours. 

After the sessions, we will reconvene to share demo-style wrap-ups and leverage resources. In past Jamathons, the Rising Leaders have disbursed additional funding as singular grants to the solution they found most innovative. This year, we will infuse financial resources by way of a flash giving circle! Each participant will direct a small portion of funds at their own discretion, so YOU can help advance the solutions you are most impressed by.
