Are you an organization looking to raise money to support your mission?

Sprout is accepting applications from nonprofit organizations as well as small businesses to host a “Party with a Purpose” at the Sprout Marketplace in August and September of 2017.

A Party with a Purpose is defined as a gathering of persons with a common purpose of supporting an organization and its mission through food and philanthropy.  Each party will serve as a way to raise funds for the selected organization by inviting the public to attend, donate, and share a meal and learn about the organization’s mission. Each party will feature foods from Amish, Tribal, Somali, youth, grower, or Latino cultures.

Eligible applicants’ missions should support food, arts, and/or culture. Priority will be given to organizations based in Cass, Crow Wing, Morrison, Todd and/or Wadena counties, but applicants from outside the Region 5 area but within 100 miles of Little Falls are also encouraged to apply. Dollars raised at the party will be used to further support the selected organization’s mission.
