$4,500 Pittsburgh Green Innovators: Co-Workshop Membership Start-Up Support
PROGRAM: 2016 Small & Simple
GRANTEE: Pittsburgh Green Innovators
This grant will support CoWorkshop Membership Fee Start-Up Support for two small non-profits for Pittsburgh Green Innovator’s co-working space at the EIC. With a preference for stable workspace and collaborative environment, yet limited means of startup budgets, the nonprofits have committed to providing $100 per month for their CoWorkshop Membership. PGI’s rate is $350 per month and they have already applied a community partner discount of $250 per month. PGI is requesting a total of $4,500 for membership fee support ($150 per month for 15 months each). The two occupants will be Black Urban Gardeners and Farmers of Pittsburgh (BUGs) and M-Powerhouse, a new educational program delivered to 4th through 6th graders from the Hill District Community using the CoWorkshop work room and the Citizens Science Lab in the EIC, with prospects for expanding to additional schools. PGI is looking to connect BUGs to community Kitchens of Pittsburgh through use of the EIC.
