Local grassroots groups may want to run or participate in a large event that costs money, purchase a billboard for an issue, raise funds for some other initiative, or even just get the non-profit discount on a rental fee. This can sometimes be a challenging process for grassroots groups without the infrastructure and funding of an organization.
Local grassroots groups can now apply to have their initiative sponsored by TWW. If approved, the initiative is adopted a project in the TWW programs, and we will coordinate with the local group to set up fundraising tools, event fees, etc. as the project requires. The local group will manage and run their own project, including promoting fundraising efforts to cover the cost, with the support of the TWW national team.
Examples of local initiatives that TWW could sponsor:
- Event fees and fundraising for having a booth at a large event, like Pride or Earth Fair
- Donation drives for specific causes or organizations
- Purchase of group educational materials, banners, signs, or event supplies
Who is Eligible?
