Last year, Single Seed participated in The Big Give, which is a 24-hour celebration of south central Texas nonprofits. On this day every year, people around the world come together to support various nonprofit organizations through financial contributions. #BigGive2018 also seeks to raise awareness for any multitude of causes.
As a 3-month old nonprofit at the time, we were mainly hoping to share our mission with others committed to supporting nonprofit work focused on children and education. We succeeded in that endeavor. Nearly 100 donors invested in us. Because of so many people’s kindness, Single Seed achieved over 500% of our initial goal in 2017.
We were able to provide a quality free tutoring program to elementary school children in San Antonio at absolutely no cost to the families. Our work spread through the city, causing our waiting list to grow. Now there are also other groups looking to work with Single Seed to bring our program to different parts of the city.
In 2018, we are launching a series of life wellness workshops for middle school and high school students. The vision has been well-received by parents, and we anticipate great things. As we work to create sustainability within our organization and advance our mission of increasing quality educational experiences for Bexar County families, we need your support.
Our primary aims for this year are to:
- Expand the Single Seed free tutoring program for ES students
- Launch the Single Seed free life wellness workshops for MS/HS students
With your help, we will continue to enhance our San Antonio students’ learning experiences, as well as plant seeds of success, leadership, and determination in each of them. On Thursday, March 22nd, visit our Big Give page (bit.ly/SingleSeedBigGive) to support our work.
We hope that you commit to our mission this year through #BigGive2018.
