     Title: Crescent Fund Deadline Extended!

Apply now! The deadline to submit applications has been extended to April 2. We are looking for innovative ideas on projects that benefit the community. Read about previous projects or contact us for ideas and submit your project for the Crescent Fund this week! 



Anyone can apply for a cash infusion from the Crescent Fund by completing an application form. The marketumbrella.org board and staff will decide if your idea benefits the triple-bottom-line. Proposals that most benefit the “triple-bottom-line” will be selected for the election process. The market community selects proposals through a democratic vote at the market and online during posted voting periods. Each season, the Crescent Fund awards a minimum of 3 cash infusions of up to $500 each. After 6 months, the funds are returned to the market through time, talent or treasure. Those who receive cash infusions will also be asked to share their results with marketumbrella.org and the Crescent Fund investors.
