In early 2013, the Ontario Trillium Foundation awarded Manifesto $326,000 as part of the Future Fund. We are excited to announce that the grant will be used to expand the Freshest Goods program. Since Manifesto's inception, Freshest Goods has been a dynamic part of the organization by hosting pop-up shops, workshops, and the annual Festival market for established and emerging fashion designers, artists and community organizations.
Manifesto looks to improve and increase the impact of Freshest Goods with an online sales platform, informative workshops, and partnerships with organizations across Ontario. The goal is to improve the lives of young social entrepreneurs, fashion designers and artists in Ontario by increasing their opportunities for sales and expanding their networks.
Now we are looking to begin building the new Freshest Goods website, we have made a Request for Proposals (RFP) for an individual or individuals to create this new site.
WEBSITE BUILD AND DESIGN
