It is so hard to be a start-up organization. Every dollar is gained through hours of effort. Pollination Project came through as one of our very first funders. Not only did this grant provide money to assist in our outreach efforts, it represented a belief in us as an official organization. By putting the Pollination Project logo on our website, getting mentioned in the Huffington Post, and getting financial support – it showed others that they could believe in us too. We have raised over $20,000 since getting our grant and I’m confident that the Pollination Project grant was the catalyst.
