Event description

Description

The Big Impact is a 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. Pre-selected projects will be pitched to the audience by our Co:Lab cohorts interested in utilizing the funding to carry out their neighborhood projects.

The Co:Lab program is a deeply engaging and experiential opportunity for a select group of Milwaukeeans to apply their diverse skills, build new connections into the city, and work together to produce a high-impact solution for a real community issue. The featured neighorhoods of this project are Mitchell Street, Avenues West, and Granville.

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.

(Please note, this event is non-refundable. If you bought a ticket and are no longer able to attend, your ticket fee will still be applied to the winner's fund.)



Featured Neighborhood Project Challenges:

Mitchell Street Team:

How might we activate the Modjeska Theater as a vibrant and emblematic center for the Mitchell Street community?

Avenues West Team:

How might we leverage the unique cultural energy during Doors Open Milwaukee and use it to drive interest for Avenues West’s Live, Work, Play Homeownership Incentive program?

Granville Team:

How might we create a new sense of community, ownership and belonging for the young professionals working for local Granville businesses?
