Why: Be a part of the decision making model for funding a grassroots project that will benefit our city!

How: Donate $5-$10, which gets you a delicious dinner, a vote, and entrance to the event.

The Grant Salon is an opportunity to learn about different initiatives headed by amazing Chicago project leads and civic innovators!

You listen to presentations on local programs, hand picked by our judging team from the applications submitted, and then you vote for one to receive a microgrant provided by Burners Without Borders Chicago (raised at the Winter Ball) and door donations. We would like to thank Bold Urban Renaissance Network for their fiscal sponsorship.

Over the last six years, our community has been able to award around $20K to projects all over the Chicagoland area.

During the voting process, you will feast upon a delectable dinner provided by Edible Alchemy Foods. Please RSVP so we can make sure that we cook enough food! **Bring something sweet for a dessert potluck!**

We look forward to seeing you there! And stay tuned for more info!
