Apply for Holiday MEAET - your local charity could win a $2,500 donation!

Holiday MEAET, Presented by RBC

Edmonton’s NextGen and RBC want to support local charities, ending a challenging year by spreading the giving spirit and awarding a donation.   

Edmonton’s NextGen is excited to announce our Holiday MEAET, presented by RBC - a virtual micro-funding contest to support local charities. We are inviting organizations to share their missions with a short video, which we will share on our social media channels. 

6 charities have been invited to present to guests at a virtual event on Giving Tuesday (November 30, 2021). Event attendees will vote live and the winning charity will receive a $2,500 donation!

At MEÆT, we come together to make the funding decisions ourselves, now.  Applying to pitch at the event is intentionally simple to encourage broad participation and rapid impact. Attend the event to meet and eat: listen to the pitches and get to know the presenters and then vote on your favourite initiative, while enjoying a local snack. Along with community promotion for all initiatives, ticket proceeds or a sponsored prize will help the winning pitch succeed in the community.

March 2021 saw our first virtual MEAET events, with a campaign supporting small local businesses with a 'keep the lights on' cash prize. Listen to a recap and hear from the winners on Amplomedia's Amplify Your Business Podcast here!
