Thank you for taking the time to complete the Elevation Awards application and share your proposed community solution with us. After reviewing the 200+ applications received, we will not be offering you an Elevation Award at this time.

That being said, we want to see your idea succeed and our community benefit, as a result. To that end, we will be hosting a day-long session Saturday, November 18, to cover topics such as business planning, finding funding, and leveraging community partners. Additionally, this session will offer you the opportunity to connect and engage with other community-minded individuals whose social impact ideas may pair nicely with your own.

If you feel you could benefit from this opportunity, we ask that you please RSVP no later than Friday, September 29, so we can plan appropriately. A continental breakfast and lunch will be provided.

As part of the "finding funding" portion of the day-long session, we will share a whole host of opportunities around the city, many of which are on an annual cycle, but in the meantime, we wanted to share the following upcoming opportunities and community resources with you:

Social Innovation Lab's Impact Bootcamp
Saturday, September 30

Bunting Neighborhood Leadership Program
Deadline: October 11
Facebook Live Information Session: September 18

Again, thank you for applying, and we hope to continue to work with you to identify the best ways to move your idea forward for a stronger, healthier Baltimore!
