You gotta read, baby, read! Mark your calendars! On Friday, November 9, the KIPP Baltimore Team and Family will come together for 24 hours, on campus and online, for our second annual Giving Day. Last year, we exceeded our $5,000 goal and raised just over $12,000. This year, our goal is to raise $15,000 to support our Classroom Library Project!
Giving Day is a critical lever to our fundraising efforts, and we’re excited to lean on the KIPP Baltimore Team & Family to make this year’s Giving Day a success! Here is how you can make a difference:
BECOME A GIVING DAY AMBASSADOR: Ambassadors act as peer-to-peer influencers through personal and professional networks, relationships and social media platforms. We know everyone is busy, so that’s why we’ve made becoming a Giving Day Ambassador simple:
- Sign up by emailing Jasmine Bacot, Manager of External Relations, at Jbacot1@kippbaltimore.org
- Spreading the word about Giving Day to friends, family, personal networks, and the school community (emails, social media, word of mouth)
- Make a gift on Giving Day at https://donatenow.networkforgood.org/kippbaltimoregivingday2018
SHARE: Spread the word about the Giving Day on social media. Like and share KIPP Baltimore’s Facebook posts and like and retweet on the KIPP Baltimore Twitter page about Giving Day throughout the months of October and November. Make sure you use the hashtag #KIPPBaltimoreGivingDay2018
MAKE A GIFT: Our entire Team and Family, which includes donors, community partners, Board members, teachers, faculty & staff, families, alumni, and friends are challenged to show their support for Giving Day. All gifts made online between 12:00AM-11:59PM EST Friday, November 9 will count towards Giving Day.
ASK: Ask your personal network to join you in making a gift!
Here’s to an amazing day of giving, community, and KBI pride!
