What an incredible and inspiring night we shared on Thursday - thank you for joining us and for supporting Opportunity Fund!
We hope you enjoyed the tamales, sushi, fried chicken, doughnuts and all the delicious food prepared by our talented chefs, most of whom, received a microloan to launch or expand their business. Click here to send us your feedback on the night - we'd love to hear your thoughts! (And someone will win a chocolate gift box from #OpportunityFunded Kika's Treats just for responding.)
Taste of Microfinance is an important fundraiser, helping Opportunity Fund's clients close the gap between a dream an opportunity to get ahead. Every dollar invested in Opportunity Fund produces ripple effects in the community, helping entrepreneurs like Alicia to grow their businesses, create jobs and contribute to our local economy.
Last night, we raised $50,000 towards our $100,000 goal to create 200 jobsby June 30th. You can help us meet our end-of-year job creation goal. All donors who sign up to make a monthly, recurring gift of any amount by Friday, 5/20 will be entered in a special drawing.
