Do you like volunteerism and fellowship? Are you social media savvy? Do you have the knowledge and energy to lead a team? The Valencia Foundation invites you to help make college a reality for hundreds of students by supporting the first-ever, First One Campaign.
The First One campaign aims to raise $100,000 in scholarships for first generation students. The best part is that the $100,000 raised by August 10, will be doubled by a matching grant! This means that once the fundraising goal is reached, the Foundation will be able to provide $200,000 in scholarships to deserving students who are among the first ones in their families to attend college.
The Valencia Foundation would love to have your support of the First One campaign. There are many ways you can get involved:
- Lead – Consider being a team leader! You can have fun with your friends setting up a team with a ‘fun’ name online at www.valencia.org/firstone, and then begin inviting others to join your team. Many templates, (for example a “join my team” email template) are available to make this an easy process.
- Join – Not one to lead a team? Well, you can volunteer with one of the already established teams – simply click on the team name you would like to join and click “join team”.
- Share – Get involved by spreading the word about the First ONE campaign, and share your “first” story to inspire others. Change your Facebook profile pictures and/or Twitter avatar in support, and invite others to do the same (#firstone). You can visit the Facebook ONE page for over 20 awesome options of profile pictures to choose from.
- Donate – If you’d like to make a donation, visit the First One donation webpage, and click “give now”.
