Giving Thanks. #GivingTuesday.
Over 1 million students drop out of high school every year. Over a million. This crowdfunding campaign is a core part of our participation in the national day of philanthropy: #GivingTuesday. We are trying to bring awareness to the issue of why teens drop out, why it’s hard to get back on track. We are seeking to actively engage more people to make a difference for a student who is struggling to re-engage in their education. The momentum is building! Thank you for being part of it.
On Nov. 15 we launched this IncitED campaign. In our first week we were able to raise over $3,000 toward our goal of $10,000. These funds support students who need extra help in emergencies: food, shelter, transportation. Things that most of us have. We’ve received gifts of $5 all the way to $500 from over 40 supporters so far. But much more mobilization is needed to make a difference for the thousands of Gateway to College students in Gateway programs nationwide. Thank you for playing a part — and thank you for raising the opportunity to help in your networks. (Mike at South Texas GtC — we thank you for your challenge!!)
On #GivingTuesday, December 3 we’re looking to reach 100 new supporters with gifts of any size - let’s grow this crowd!!
