IRIS looking for help to plan the Run for Refugees

IRIS will host the 5th Annual Run for Refugees- a fund-raising 5K run/walk up East Rock- on Super Bowl Sunday, February 5, 2012.  We are looking for volunteers to help plan the event! 

 

Most needed are volunteers to ask restaurants to donate food to the post-race party, or to help solicit financial sponsors. 

We will also need help making decisions about the details that go into putting on a race- like what color t-shirts to buy! 

Finanally, we are looking for acoustic musicians to play on the course to encourage the runners along- steel drums, accordion, bag pipes, marching band, etc! 

 

If you enjoy party planning, running, walking, food, or music, please contact Kelly Hebrank at (203) 562-2095 or khebrank@irisct.org.

Hi Kelly, Let me know when the first meeting will be and I will do my best to attend.  How much I can help will depend on how busy my schedule gets over the next few months.  No matter what, I can help you get the word out for what you need and to try and fill the race. :) Hugs, Sherry

Lenders Launch SOAR Fund to Fuel Recovery of Small Businesses, Nonprofits in the South

The Southern Opportunity and Resilience (SOAR) Fund is raising $150 million to provide flexible, affordable financing and support services to “the smallest of small businesses” and nonprofits across 15 southern states. The fund will work with CDFIs to deploy capital, targeting historically underbanked owners and organizations. LISC is serving as fund manager.

Rethinking Ways to Get Capital to Small Businesses

The pandemic has prodded state and local governments to think hard and act quickly to move public money into shoring up the small business sector. An article in Next City looks at how new public-private partnerships—particularly ones engaging CDFIs, like the LISC-managed NY Forward Loan Fund—are paving the way to make equitable small business development part of a new normal.

Partnership Means Being Prepared

In the era of Covid-19, connected ecosystems are paying off for small businesses struggling to keep their doors open. Which proves just how critical LISC’s ongoing work to build relationships that support economic development really is, in times of crisis and beyond.
