For the past 4 years KKOOM has participated in fundraising opportunities through GlobalGiving. Born of an idea from two World Bank executives GlobalGiving is a grassroots fundraising platform for grassroots nonprofits like KKOOM to raise funds for our causes. You know your money is going to a good cause because GlobalGiving ensures only quality programs are funded through strict oversight.
KKOOM inaugurated its first GlobalGiving campaign by raising over $10,000 and winning first and third in two competitions! It was an exciting time for KKOOM, for our generous supporters, and never would have happened without yours and GlobalGiving’s help.
One of the hallmarks of GlobalGiving is their continuous efforts to increase donor fundraising through their Bonus Days. This upcoming Bonus Day on Wednesday, April 16th is extra special in that a whole 50% of funds donated to KKOOM through GlobalGiving’s campaign will be matched by GlobalGiving and Microsoft. 50% doesn’t happen very often, which is why we are extra excited by this opportunity.
The specific program we are fundraising for is KKOOM’s College Scholarship Fund. KKOOM provides scholarships for achievement-minded young Korean orphan adults. One of the first recipients was able to fulfill his dream of traveling the world and changing peoples’ perceptions of Korean orphans and achievement. Five more this year are recipients of the award. The orphanage staff remark on the level of achievement these young adults have steadied themselves toward. KKOOM would like to further the capacity for more worthy orphans this year to take the steps toward their professional lives. Participate in the upcoming Bonus Day on Wednesday, April 16th and watch how your generous donation affects the lives of orphans.
KKOOM would like to give a special thank you to GlobalGiving and Microsoft for making this all happen!
Also, thanks a million to you, our awesomely supportive donors! Don’t forget to check out our GlobalGiving website for College Scholarship Fund updates and to donate – with matched funds – this Wednesday, April 16th!
