What did Mission Graduates need?

Shilpi helped Mission Graduates * A plan to define its fundraising goals * Fundraising tactics * Funding sources

Why is this project important?

We are a non-profit located in a night-life rich neighborhood that historically has been home to immigrant populations. Through this event, we are connecting with local businesses to support the families that go to school in our neighborhood. We are also given the chance to connect with "new" Mission residents and help them not just live in the Mission but be a part of our community. Food for Thought is that bridge and it is essential to our outreach and fundraising plans.

This project will save us $2,500, allowing us to grow and serve 130 students at our newest site, Flynn Elementary.
