#GivingTuesday is Here – Support Jefferson Awards Foundation Get Matched
Giving Tuesday has arrived and the storytelling campaign of Jefferson Awards Foundation is live now. They are raising money here. Recently, I caught up with Kat Krieger to learn more about the effort; here’s what she told me:
What is the social benefit you hope to achieve with or through your crowdfunding campaign?
The Jefferson Awards Foundation powers public service through 5 programs–starting December 1st it will start a year end campaign that features a story a day at http://blog.jeffersonawards.org/. Each story features a student, company, program or board member and how they are giving back to their community through the help of the Jefferson Awards Foundation.
The Year End Campaign will fund all 5 JAF programs: GlobeChangers, LEAD360, Students In Action, Champions and Media Partners.
How much money are you hoping to raise and why? How much have you raised so far?
The goal is to raise $100,000 – because the Jefferson Awards’ Board Chair, Joe Sanberg, has offered a $1 for $1 match of every dollar donated in the month of December, up to $100,000!
That means that for every dollar the Jefferson Awards raises this month, they can generate almost $150 in community value.
Whom are you trying to help with your project and why?
Because the Jefferson Awards Foundation powers public service they activate public and community service projects all over the country in multiple areas of impact. For example, in 2015, the areas of impact for the LEAD360 program included food & hunger, education & literacy and health & wellness. However, the 4 other JAF programs are able to chose specific service projects depending on need and the surrounding community.
Which category of crowdfunding campaign best fits what you are doing?
Donations based – no rewards, equity or repayment
