ELMSEED ENTERPRISES FUND INC's Fundraiser:

Friends & Family Drive

THE STORY:

We've been helping New Haven entrepreneurs since 2001. And, every year, Elmseed relies on donations from people like you, our friends and our families, to help fund the work we do in the New Haven community. Unlike most other nonprofit organizations, our organization is composed entirely of volunteers, from Yale University, so we have no salary costs and very little overhead. This means that every penny we receive goes directly toward funding life-changing microloans, financial aid for our business consulting services, and cutting-edge programs such as our Entrepreneurship Development Course. This year, we're hoping to raise $8,000 with our Friends & Family Drive. In addition to helping Elmseed continue providing its core services, your donations will allow us to serve more clients with our Entrepreneurship Development Course by eliminating participation fees, and to expand our loan fund for non-traditional applicants. 

So, how can you help? We deeply appreciate donations of any size – so much so, in fact, that we thought we'd let you know what a few different donation amounts might help us accomplish:

  • $10 can provide financial aid for one consulting session with one of our neediest clients
  • $50 can cover our printing costs for one session of the Entrepreneurship Development Course
  • $100 can fund Elmseed's core web/computer services for six months
  • $250 can provide financial aid to underwrite a client's entire consulting relationship

And, of course, any donation amount can contribute toward our life-changing Elmseed microloans, which range in size from $500 to $5,000

No matter the size of the gift, your generosity makes a real difference to entrepreneurial individuals in New Haven. Please donate today. Thank you!

If you are interested in making a larger or recurring donation, we'd love to talk to you! Please contact our Director of Development, Iain Barr, at iain.barr@elmseed.org.
