#SurgeForMore 2019 Sees a Milestone in the Movement!

The 2019 #SurgeForMore giving campaign recently concluded with the usher of a new decade, and we were blown away by the incredible wave of generous donations and support for our work and community. Thanks to all of the amazing donors, we were able to surpass our original goal of $150,000 to support programming that elevates and unites a coalition of emerging education leaders of color who make an impact on our youth and communities of color.

With an amazing grand total of $166,563, we knocked it out of the park and raised over sixty thousand dollars more than our 2018 #SurgeForMore total!

This milestone could not have happened without the support from YOU, our village and family. In addition, we would like to thank our generous match donors: three anonymous match supporters provided $25,000, $20,000, and $10,000 respectively, and the San Francisco Foundation provided $2,500!

We humbly appreciate all who donated to 2019’s #SurgeForMore giving campaign and thank you for your continuous love and support of this work. We could not have done it without you. If you haven’t had a chance to give, it’s never too late! In fact, you can join the Surge Impact Community, a group of investors who have committed to supporting this movement with a monthly recurring donation.

Once again, thank you for being a part of this movement, and be sure to follow us on social media to stay in touch with the latest Surge news and updates!
