Join us on a campaign to promote education and support our undocumented student community!
The 2015-2016-fundraising committee is excited to announce the launch of the “IDEAS Alumni Give Back Campaign”. This month of December, we are asking you, as an IDEAS alumni, to help us expand our scholarship fund for undocumented students. In keeping this scholarship tradition alive, we hope that we can count on your support to give back to a space that provided you with love, support, and strength during your time at UCLA. Any possible donation makes an impact, and your contributions will help us reach our goals.
In our efforts to build a scholarship fund for undocumented students entering higher education at UCLA and in surrounding communities, the fundraising team has been working to seek ways to grow our funds. This fall quarter we have had a strong start to our fundraising efforts through successful events, raising almost $1,000 so far. However, our work continues through this winter break; this is why we are reaching out to you for support during the holidays. Help us continue building funds for the IDEAS scholarships! This year we are focusing our efforts on those students that are not able to benefit from the AB-540 legislation, CA Dream Act, or DACA program. We recognize that the fight for our rights is not over, and though some of us are now able to reap the benefits of some of these programs, there is still a large number of students who rely on scholarships like this one, as a primary resource of financial assistance.
Throughout the month of December, we will be presenting you with stories of some of those students in our community whom you would support through your generosity. For ultimate transparency, we will be using the Go Get Funding platform, for our “IDEAS Alumni Give Back Campaign”, in order for you to see first hand the impact that your collaborations will be making towards reaching our goal. Call us ambitious; but we believe that with your support we can reach the goal of $5,000 during the month of December. During this season of giving, we hope that you keep your IDEAS family in mind. You serve as a legacy to current cohorts and the work that we do is an ongoing effort to grow the support for our community. We are so grateful for any contribution you are able to make; your generosity is fundamental to our progress. Please help us by also spreading the word along your network.
