Our 2018 #SurgeForMore seven-days of online giving has come to a close, and once again, we saw an inspiring flood of support from our growing community of change agents. Through your generosity, we surpassed our lofty goal of $75,000 in support of programming to develop, elevate and unite emerging education leaders of color, who impact our communities.
With an incredible grand total of $104,137, we blew that goal out of the water and raised more than double our 2017 #SurgeForMore total, all while gaining a multitude of new donors across the nation.
This record-breaking achievement could not have been possible without such generous donations from you, our passionate supporters! We are thrilled to share our appreciation for the loud voices and valiant efforts of our Surge Fellow and Alumni family, who raised more than $15,000 toward the grand total.
We would also like to give special thanks to our generous match donors: two anonymous supporters provided $20,000 and $5,000, respectively, and the Walter & Elise Haas Fund provided $5,000!
Finally, we want to acknowledge an amazing $35,000 donation from an anonymous donor, a deeply heartwarming show of love and passion for our movement and mission!
We are greatly appreciative to all who donated during our #SurgeForMore seven-days of giving, and thank you for your love and support of this work. We could not do it without you. If you haven’t had a chance to give, it’s never too late! In fact, you can join our Impact Community of investors, who have committed to supporting this movement with a monthly reoccurring donation.
Thank you for being a part of this movement, and have a wonderful holiday season!
