TMJ, which connects job seekers with employers via Twitter, is one of six community initiatives within Brown’s new Neighborhood Fund, which, as of this morning, is seeking a combined $193,000 from “businesses, citizens and other stakeholders,” according to a press release.
The tax-deductible fund, established through the Delaware Community Foundation, was created to back programs that foster employment, education and civic engagement in Brown’s 3rd district.
“We need to continue to create innovative ways to support varied community-based needs, so it is my hope that The Neighborhood Fund will be a sustainable revenue stream to promote opportunity and prosperity in the 3rd Council District,” said Brown.
Of the six community projects seeking funds, Tweet My Jobs — a free platform — has the second biggest ask, with the first being the Kingswood Community Center ($60,000).
The funds will cover “administrative costs for one year,” according to Brown’s communications director John Rago. “This is an annual, ongoing expense.”
Earlier this summer, Brown said over 3,800 individuals and 120 businesses have signed up for TMJ, for a total of 60,000 views.
