UPDATE 9/24/20: Great news! In a matter of days, we’ve already reached our initial $3,000 fundraising goal for our A Community Thrives campaign on Mightycause.
We want to give a huge thank you to those who donated to help us reach our initial goal so quickly! With 22 more days to go in this fundraising campaign, we feel confident in revising our goal.
Our cost per student this school year breaks down to about $325 for each student we serve, meaning that our new goal of $6,500 would help us to serve 20 students who are in need of a mentor during this difficult time. The more we receive equals more students we are able to serve (at a cost of $325 per student).
The good news is that we’re already about halfway there! If you haven’t already, can you make a contribution to help put us closer to our goal?
If we end up as one of the top fundraisers through the ACT initiative this week, we can also win an additional bonus grant of $5,000! That amount of money can make a huge difference in the lives of the children we serve.
Thank you for your support!
P.S. for those of you who have already donated, can you help us to extend our reach? By forwarding our campaign to a few of your friends and asking them to contribute, you can greatly increase our success!
We’re excited to announce that Everybody Wins! Iowa has once again been selected to participate in USA TODAY NETWORK’s A Community Thrives Campaign.
This is big news that will provide a much needed boost in funding for our program and the children that we serve. Last year, we were able to raise over $13,000 from this initiative!
We were very successful in our previous campaign because of the generosity of our supporters. But, we need your help once again.
We are challenged with the task of raising $3,000 from individual donors. By meeting our $3,000 individual donation goal, we will become eligible for a number of grants ranging from $2,500-$100,000, meaning your donation today will make an even bigger impact in the life of a child who is struggling to read.
Our Power Read program is provided for students at absolutely no cost to them. Your donation today ensures that so we can bring our program to the students who need it most.
Traditionally, our program is held in-person at school, however, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, our program had to move to an online (or Pen Pal) format. We have incurred additional expenses for moving online such as increased technology needs and postage for mailing books.
Please note: donations must be made through the Mightycause platform in order for them to count towards our donation goal. Donations through this campaign will be accepted until Friday, October 16 at 11:00 a.m.
Thank you for your support of Everybody Wins! Iowa and the children that we serve. Your kindness and generosity are very much appreciated!
