The Harlem Educational Activities Fund (aka HEAF) is a 29 year old college success and college achievement non-profit program helping NYC public students from sixth grade through college graduation. It is also a diversity pipeline program for the workplace where we are building academic achievement, leadership skills, and career readiness. We have three key goals over the coming few years, we want to a) raise the visibility for this amazing organization, b) create greater innovative student programming, and c) ensure our sustainability for the next 25 years. You can help us reach that goal, by contributing to our 11 x 11 fundraising campaign today!
Last year, in our first online giving campaign, in honor of the 11+ year commitment we make to our students, we hosted our first online giving campaign. Through crowdrise, we gave $11 and asked 11 of our friends to give a mere $11 with a goal of raising at least $11,000 in 11 days. Through everyone’s support and dedication we nearly quadrupled this and raised over $42,000! We realized the power of the multiplier and for our 2nd year we have set our goal to surpass last year, which we believe we can do with your help. Like last year, it starts with a commitment to set up an individual or group crowdrise page with a personal contribution of $11. It's give $11 (or more) and ask 11 people you know to do the same. It's that simple. And with your help we can take this small, grassroots campaign and grow it into something even bigger! Please help us in year 2 and let us know we can count on you!
