BENEFITING: Harlem Educational Activities Fund, Inc.
EVENT DATE: Mar 21, 2017
For over 27 years, the Harlem Educational Activities Fund (HEAF) has served NYC by providing students the opportunity to enhance their academics with the goal of graduating from college. HEAF changes the lives of underserved young people beginning in middle school and continuing through college with a youth development approach that includes rigorous year-round academic enrichment, social and cultural exposure, and constant individual attention.
HEAF is launching our first online campaign fundraiser 11 x 11! Our goal is to raise $11,000 in 11 days from March 21 - March 31. The 11 x 11 giving campaign is about the power of the masses. We might not have a lot to give, but if we all do a little, we can dramatically make a difference.
We graciously ask to give what you can, whether it's $11, or more. And we hope you will ask 11 of your friends to do the same. It's give $11 and ask 11. It's that simple. And with your help we can take this small, grassroots campaign and turn it into something really big!
We are power in numbers and we are the power to help HEAF maintain its 11 year commitment to our students and families.
Why am I passionate about HEAF?
HEAF is a unique place that allows students to grow and thrive throughout their middle and high school years! Its amazing to see these students develop into young adults and really take their futures in their own hands. I wish I had known how to plan out which colleges to apply to and to think strategically about those outcomes! These students start doing that early on! It's a worthwhile cause to help plant these seeds and help them grow into our future leaders
