Shorewood Foundation Shark Tank Challenge
Sept 24, 2018 7-9 PM Three Lions Pub

The Shorewood Foundation is hosting its first Shark Tank Challenge to give residents a chance in an open forum to present their ideas for projects they believe the Foundation should fund. The event aims to solicit possible grant opportunities for projects that align with the the Foundation’s stated objectives to increase the quality of life in the Village.

Here’s how Shorewood Foundation Shark Tank Works:

Any individuals or organizations interested in presenting an idea to a panel of Foundation directors should arrive at Three Lions Pub on Oakland on September 24th between 7-9PM. Parties should check in at the registration table, and must be prepared to discuss in five minutes or less:

  • A summary of their proposed project

  • How the proposed concept aligns with the Shorewood Foundation’s objectives to celebrate, connect and sustain the community

  • How much money is being requested

  • How grant dollars would be used, if provided.

A panel of board members will engage in discussion. Guests will have the opportunity to formally complete a grant request form on-site, or with assistance after the event. All participants will be personally notified about the status of their pitch after the event. Any requests the panel wishes to advance for funding will receive support by Board members to help guide grant requestors through the process.

Please note: participating in the pitch does not guarantee a project will receive granting opportunities. Watch the Shark Tank Facebook event page for additional details and updates or learn more about working with the Shorewood Foundation.
