The 10th leadership class of Next Level Trainings has completed their fundraising efforts in support of Urban Creators’ Life Do Grow farm in North Philadelphia, surpassing their initial goal of $50,000. The initial goal was reached after only twenty-five days worth of fundraising. In total $61, 008 was raised.
We, Transformation Tribe, the 10th class of Next Level Trainings’ Vision and Impact Program (VIP) in Philadelphia, were charged with creating a massively impactful community service project. Our team chose to stand in support of Urban Creators, a nonprofit that stands for self-determination and youth empowerment.
What does $50,000 mean to a three-acre farm? For one urban oasis in North Philly, it’s a literal lifesaver. The Life Do Grow farm, a nearly decade-old sanctuary on a corner lot at 11th and Dakota streets, is recieving a $55,000 boost thanks to a recent crowdfunding effort. The crowdfunding initiative was led by local entrepreneurs enrolled in the Next Level Trainings, an Ohio-based program that teaches leadership skills.
Exceeding with $56,333 raised and climbing, the group of 23 leaders continues to create opportunities to impact the Urban Creators’ work by maximizing their fundraising total. There will be a check presentation representing the total contribution to date tonight, Thursday, August 22, 2019 at 7:00 PM at Urban Creators, located at 2315 N 11th St, Philadelphia, PA 19133.
