$50,000 opens a school in India. We purchase and refurbish a school building. Then we buy supplies, desks, computers, and hire teachers and custodial staff.
Effect invests in each school to ensure quality, training, lesson plans and student improvement.
We’ve included some posts you can use to spread the word on social media:
TIP: Be sure to follow up with your supporters and potential donors throughout the campaign. Don’t forget to post updates. Send reminders via email and social media half-way through the campaign, and a few days before the end, as a final push. Watch out for over-posting or spamming people, your reminders can lose effect and get ignored.
Start Small Start with 15 friends and family, email them your mission statement, don’t be shy, put a personal spin on it!
IN PERSON Involve coworkers and remember the power of face to face. Give a short presentation at your workplace or school, create a campaign stand in a popular location, or create a video!
BLOG If you or friends have a blog, consider posting or guest posting about illiteracy worldwide, the statistics and need for schools.
THANK YOUR SUPPORTERS When your campaign ends, go back to your community letting them know what you achieved, and thanking them for their support. Acknowledge every person who donates to you, no matter how small the amount. Send them a personal e-mail, publicly thank them on Facebook by tagging their name in a post, or send a handwritten thank-you card.
Every penny of the money you raise will go to school projects. We’ll also report back to you with updates on our schools.
If you raise 50k, you’ll receive a full school report, a plaque thanking you and your supporters, and the chance to join us in India and visit your school!
