Community Connect 

The goal of the new Community Connect committee is to act as the large scale service arm of Emerge Montgomery. We are teaming up with the Squadron Officer School to connect 6 classes of 700 officers to large scale volunteer needs in Montgomery. 

Community Connect is also teaming up with Serquest, a locally based online platform that provides volunteer recruitment and management for non-profits. We are excited to utilize the Serquest platform to connect members of the Community Connect committee to volunteer needs in Montgomery that we can take action to meet!

Want more information on getting involved? Email Bill Alexson at for opportunities to serve!

Mayor's Cup & AUM Outreach are also part of this committee (more information on these coming soon!) 

Gumption Fund 

Emerge Montgomery is excited to be taking over the Gumption Fund, a micro grant fund that funds small projects and ideas that benefit the community of Montgomery. Previously developed and nurtured by  Montgomery's Downtown Business Association, Gumption Fund has dispensed micro grants to many creative projects around town since 2015, including the Montgomery Bike Club downtown bike racks, Cloverdale Community Garden, and most recently the Rotary Dog Park mural at the corner of Coosa & Bibb Street.

Our goal is continue to fund creative ideas from local individuals and groups that can create a better Montgomery. We also plan to co-lead a  Gumption Fund event in late 2018 that will showcase and reward larger scale creative ideas, similar to Ignite MGM, a successful effort by Gumption Fund in January 2017. #gumptionfund
