Do you have a business idea you want to get started?
Maybe a line expansion in your current business?
Is your non-profit looking for funding for a specific project?
Do you have a small idea that can make a big difference in Two Rivers?
Show of Hands is your opportunity to get started!
Show of Hands is a community-supported crowd-funding event. Community members are presented with projects that would positively impact Two Rivers and vote on the project they want to support with donations from the door and generous support of our community partners.
If you or someone you know is working on a community project and would like funding to help move the project along, please fill out the application below. All projects are welcome to apply, but only four will be chosen to present at the next Show of Hands event.
The winner of the Fall 2019 Show of Hands event was the Manitowoc-Two Rivers YMCA and their new Rock Steady Boxing Parkinson’s program.
HOW SHOW OF HANDS WORKS:
Attendees make a donation of at least $5 for a vote.
Four pre-selected proposals for projects that benefit the community are presented.
Attendees cast their vote for the project they want to help fund.
The project with the most votes receives all of the money raised at the door + contributions from community partners.
Winners come back to a future Show of Hands to tell the audience how their project went/is progressing, how they used the money, and the impact it had on the community.
Your attendance at Show of Hands is greatly appreciated and will show individuals presenting projects that they have the support of a strong community.
