giving tuesdayWe know. It’s probably been impossible to escape from online solicitations today. It’s #GivingTuesday, which follows Black Friday, Cyber Monday and is designed to hit you up to remember what matters in life. While we appreciate the sentiment, the truth is a lot of small shops like us just can’t afford to put the effort into intensive online campaigns.  A recent article found that DC Central Kitchen discovered its gifts actually shrank in response to the campaign. For small organizations with limited capacity who are fighting for every dollar they can get while trying to keep the lights on and their servers from crashing, #GivingTuesday can be all glam no results.

In the spirit of disruptive innovation, we’d like to offer a gift on #GivingTuesday. A gift of money. We compiled 10 funding opportunities for social innovators in the District and have been tweeting them out all day. So roll up your sleeves and get clicking!
