Pollen Midwest

A $15,000 Challenge

Pollen Midwest invests in human connection to fuel empathy and momentum for social change by sharing stories of critical narratives, hosting events where essential conversations happen, and linking people to new professional and personal opportunities.


Many of our Pollenites are small business owners who embody Pollen’s mission and believe in the power of narrative, the power of networking, and the power of opportunity. Twelve of the region’s most value-driven small businesses have come together in support of Pollen’s mission with a challenge to Pollenites: raise $15,000 by November 16 and they will match it dollar for dollar.

Join this hive of leaders:

Your financial support powers Pollen’s work to:

  • Map critical narratives of our communities most impactful leaders
  • Host accessible events where essential conversations happen, and
  • Maintain a free opportunities board that connects the region’s leaders to the best jobs and events.

We blur the boundaries of networks and help people connect across difference to inspire empathy and momentum for social change. Our 10,000+ members—or Pollenites, as they like to call themselves:

  • Want to make a positive impact in the community
  • Network and connect with a purpose
  • Seek to understand and tackle the thorniest of issues
