This year we are implementing a crowdfunding website to help us reach our Annual Fund goal of $50,000. Crowdfunding is the use of simple, easy to share, websites to gather donations from a large group of people to raise funds. We are using a crowdfunding platform called CauseVox that is specifically geared towards non-profit organizations. The website enables users to leave comments via Facebook and directly share the site on their own social media pages. Here is a link to our site orindaacademy.causevox.com. Please take a moment to review the website and share the link with your friends, family, and professional network. Crowdfunding works best when members of our community pull together support from their own networks to expand our pool of donors. This year we are directing our efforts to raise money for scholarships for capable students of color. as well as enrichment programs in the general fund. As always, all donations are tax deductible. Help us continue to empower students and provide excellent college preparatory education to our diverse student body by supporting this venture.
