Vote on the Take Action Grant today!

Presenting the TAG application for April, 2011: Cyclepalooza

Please watch this short video (below) from an applicant who has a project that requires funding in Calgary Dollars and federal dollars.

You can participate in Take Action Grant review. How would this grant make a difference? Is this a concrete, clear project? Has the applicant worked for a long time on this issue? How would other community work be promoted by this project?

You can then vote yes, not in favour, or add comments in the blog along with your name.

Voting is open from noon to midnight today.

Results will be posted tomorrow.

Take Action Grants are reviewed on a monthly basis and are funded by The Calgary Foundation and Calgary Dollars.

    Yes please

  • We think this is an exciting idea. We especially like the “open-source” concept, supporting folks to organize their own events. The week that the organization has chosen is also Aboriginal awareness week in Calgary, and if the event is confirmed, we’d definitely consider hosting a cross cultural focused Cyclepalooza event.

    [YES] Ten days of bike fun can only be a good thing for Calgary. This idea could definitely use a little extra $$.

    Excellent idea

    Sounds very similar to Bow Flow events and with the same market. Consider using more social media and free advertising rather than tons of print media

    This is a great way to grow the larger community while bringing various communities together. This seems like a concrete, clear project and the applicants have been involved in this community for a long time. Because so many groups are contributing and have been invited to do so, there’s huge return in the short run as well as the potential for countless relationship and scheme-building opportunities.

  • Yes!
