You give for one micro-grant and our Board Of Directors will match...
It's the 2018 Holiday Giving Season and the close of yet another year of Stardust's service to others. Our goal is to match that with individual donations from the greater Stardust family from now through December 31st.
We need your help: our work relies on the generosity of donors like you!
Your help now brings micro-grants and all our "good" stuff of The Stardust-Startup Factory to life. And to show our gratitude, we have lots of perks to offer to thank you for your gift:
$250 - Recognition in Stardust's winter newsletter, one-year membership in Stardust's Spiritual Alchemy (for you or a friend), a Stardust vinyl sticker
$100 - One-year membership in Stardust's Spiritual Alchemy (for you or a friend), a Stardust vinyl sticker
$50 - Stardust vinyl sticker and bookmark
The Stardust-Startup Factory is rooted in the foundation of carrying on the things that Angus Moloney was passionate about: sustainability, health, and learning. If you haven't read our website stories or seen the interviews we recorded with the emerging entrepreneurs who have been helped by your donations over the past three years, we encourage you to watch the video (2 minute teaser video or the full video) to see all the good that's been created in Angus's memory.
And for 2019, we're building the Stardust Entrepreneurial Network!
At its very core, the mission of The Stardust-Startup Factory is to support emerging entrepreneurs and help their initiatives grow. This year we're proud to launch the Stardust Entrepreneurial Network (SEN): a collaborative place where our past and present micro-grant recipients network with trusted businesses who help them continue to grow, learn, and change the world. Each SEN member has something to offer to the rest of the network, so connections can be made and we can all work together!
Explore the potential of the SEN with us. 🔎 If you are an entrepreneur with experience to share, become a SEN mentor. If you have business services you want to offer, become a partner. Sign up here!
Aspiring entrepreneurs are the key to our future. Listening to their ideas and supporting their projects gives them a chance to try something new, to fill a gap, and to impact their local communities. Our role is to provide them with initial funding and a platform for sharing, so that the whole Stardust community may become inspired by their work, make connections, and see from new perspectives.
The Stardust-Startup Factory provides financial support, in the form of $2,000 micro-grants, for the innovative, inventive, and creative work of emerging entrepreneurs making positive social and environmental impact in the areas of sustainability, health, and learning.
Our focus areas represent the three most needed areas for adaptive change in our world today.
"This is an organization that cares deeply about its causes and focuses on making sure every dollar goes to make an impact in the world, in the areas of sustainability, health, and learning. Their stories are inspiring. Their impact is tangible." - Erin M
