Nonprofits & Social Entrepreneurs: Apply Now for Our Idea Jamathon!

Our new Rising Leaders Program is a group of motivated early-career professional Members. Their first big initiative this year is the upcoming Idea Jamathon, which is a mashup of an Idea Jam and a Hackathon, to be held in San Francisco on June 8th.

At this one-day event, eight selected nonprofits and social entrepreneurs will benefit from hands-on consulting support from the broader Full Circle Fund Membership. In addition to the pro-bono support, at the end of the event, organizations or individuals will present their "solution" to the challenge presented, and a grant prize of $5,000 will be awarded to the organization or social entrepreneur selected by the Full Circle Fund Rising Leaders as the most promising.

Applications are now being accepted from nonprofits and social entrepreneurs interested in participating. Click here to apply now. Former Full Circle Fund Grant Recipients are eligible and encouraged to apply as well!

Sample 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

  • The social entrepreneur or a representative from the nonprofit organization must be able to attend in person on June 8.
