Join local philanthropic investors, business leaders, entrepreneurs, and passionate community changemakers for the inaugural Grant Tank event presented by RevComm Foundation. During this fun and unconventional spin on ABC’s hit show Shark Tank, RevComm Foundation will invite local nonprofit organizations to pitch their mission and vision to an audience and most importantly an assembly of generous philanthropic “Sharks”. This interactive event will give nonprofit organizations a chance to secure the funding needed to further their mission.

Founders Crystal and Daniel along with the dedicated Board of Directors will provide you with an introduction of what RevComm Foundation is doing to level the playing field for nonprofit organizations. Come prepared to hear about the great work that is being done in and around your community. Enjoy an evening filled with food, beverages, and great conversation amongst fellow philanthropists. Most importantly of all, both attendees and sharks will have the opportunity to support and fund selected nonprofit organizations through an exciting “fast pitch” event.

Guests will be in the audience alongside Sharks to hear each agency “fast pitch” about their mission and programs. Enjoy an evening promoting a philanthropic atmosphere and join the FUNding by casting a vote for the “People’s Choice Agency” who will receive 50% of ticket sales.

NPO-Profiles-For-Goodness-Cakes

For Goodness Cakes – Inland Empire Chapter

For Goodness Cakes® has found a unique and innovative approach to supporting a highly underserved community. Beginning in 2016, Founder Jamie Lehman created a network of volunteers to bake birthday and academic graduation celebration cakes for disadvantaged youth and young adults. The organization is big on collaboration and executes its mission by partnering with other nonprofits who work directly with the cake recipients who order on their behalf, and then volunteer bakers dubbed the “Sprinkle Squad” bake a treat specialized for the recipient. Sounds simple, right? But there are very few concepts like this across the country. The vision of the organization is that through the love and support of its “Sprinkle Squard”, these youth and young adults get some much-needed time to not feel the increasing pressure of their socioeconomic situation, but rather help nurture optimism and confidence at a critical age.

Heavy Breathing Foundation

Heavy Breathing Foundation is dedicated to helping at-risk individuals build confidence through powerlifting and strength training. They believe that when people are physically strong, they are better equipped to face the challenges of the real world, and that the discipline and mental toughness required for lifting heavy weights translates directly into success in all areas of life. The organization currently offers three core programs: 1:1 sponsorship programming, which may include gym membership costs and equipment needs; an after-school program supporting youth engaged in the Boys and Girls Club; a collaborative program with local sober living home and rehab centers to provide structure and accountability. By partnering with other organizations to identify at-risk individuals who can benefit from such programs, Heavy Breathing Foundation provides them with the support and guidance they need to succeed.

Made New Foundation

The Made New Foundation emerged from its Founder’s transformation journeys during incarceration. With almost six decades of combined experience behind bars, their team realized the need for change and innovative services for those who have been justice-impacted. The organization’s belief is rooted in early intervention and education for at-risk individuals – by partnering with local schools and community centers, they inspire and empower those transitioning back into society by equipping them wrap-around services that include basic needs, education, vocational training, and mentorship. Made New Foundation’s reentry services are innovative and unique, as their vocational training component integrates cutting-edge technologies like Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Virtual Reality (VR) by personalizing learning and development paths for individuals, offering tailored guidance and support.

Surfing Madonna Oceans Project

Surfing Madonna Oceans Project is a community inspired by Mark Patterson’s Surfing Madonna mosaic that was installed in the City of Encinitas in 2011. The nonprofit was later founded to expand the sense of community that the mosaic brought into community programming for the special needs population. Programs encompass a Surf Camp that allows two hundred children with cognitive delays and physical challenges to participate in fun experiences at San Diego beaches, and Arts Programming (as tribute to the Surfing Madonna mosaic) aimed at conserving, maintaining and promoting the public display of art and the promotion of environmental conservation efforts. For the kids participating in Surf Camp, surfing represents a dream they never thought possible due to their physical and cognitive challenges. Achieving this dream has the potential to profoundly transform their lives.
