We make investing in your community SIMPLE. Here's how:
SIMPLE is a pilot project started in 2018 by a group of Roanokers who care about the community.
Here's what we do:
A group of approximately 20 people meet once a month to eat together and discuss applications submitted through this website. Through a process of elimination, the applications are narrowed down until one is accepted. The applicant receives $1000 as an unrestricted micro-grant. Rinse & repeat each month.
We believe that these monthly funding cycles will jumpstart projects that have an impact on the community. We do plan to grow this project to include more funding "pods" after this pilot year.
