About Wilmington STIR
Wilmington STIR (Sitting Together Is Radical) is an initiative which offers a means to provide funding for creative projects through community meals.
The formula is quite simple. People come together to share a meal and give a $10-20 donation. Everyone who donates gets one vote to determine which project receives the grant. Project proposals are received beforehand and presented during the meal, and at the end of meal the proposal with the most votes receives a grant comprised of that evening’s donations. The proposals accepted, and grants distributed, can vary from meal to meal.
Founding Organizational Partners: PADEAC & NWAA
