I recently learned about Inspire Mountain View. I assume I am not alone in not knowing about this organization so wanted to share. Inspire Mountain View provides grants for great ideas that make Mountain View a more compassionate and equitable community. Their grants are given based on public voting. You can find out all about them on their website.
I heard about Inspire Mountian View from a group of Mountain View high school teachers. They are part of the organization Soulforce Leadership. Soulforce Leadership realizes the future of our country, and world, lie in the hands of the youth. They take a bigger, long term view to solve the problems of today. Their approach is to teach high school students to take action while being mindful, compassionate and nonviolent.
You have probaby guessed Soulforce Leadership has applied for a grant from Inspire Mountain View and would like your vote. I feel since these grants directly affect our Mountain View community we should all vote. You can read about all the applicants here. If Soulforce Leadership is the applicant of your choice you can vote for them here. But you must act soon, voting ends April 21st.
If you know someone who might be interested in Soulforce Leadership their next program starts soon and applications are being accepted until April 15th.
