MORTAR is encouraging 100 individuals, businesses or organizations to donate any amount from $100 to $1,000 to The Iron Chest Fund. The #100FOR100 CAMPAIGN encourages Cincinnatians of diverse economic backgrounds to support our most promising neighborhood businesses.
The Iron Chest Fund is MORTAR’S newest venture that will help under-resourced entrepreneurs secure start-up funding. We are launching The Iron Chest Fund with the 100 FOR 100 CAMPAIGN.
#100FOR100 is a grassroots campaign that will use the Kiva Zip platform to recruit diverse lenders to CHANGE what “investing in our communities” looks like for non-traditional, under-served entrepreneurs.
The campaign over-subscribed the initial crowdsource effort to raise $10,000. Matching donors jumped in and at present, the fund sits at approximately $50,000.
HELL TO THE YES FOR MORTAR!
