Funding Goals Met for Summer Arts Camp for Orphans

Funding Goals Met -Summer Arts Camp for Orphans

Thank you! We did it! Your generous support of our project campaign during the GlobalGiving Open Challenge has made it possible for 75 orphans to attend 8 weeks of Kasumisou Foundation’s 2009 Summer Arts Camp.

Thanks to your support, we have now been welcomed onto the website, which should significantly broaden our exposure through personal and social networking as well as a result of the prominence of GlobalGiving in the media and within the non-profit arena.

Campaign results:

Donations made to our Summer Arts Camp for Orphans project totaled $ 6,400 from 77 donors, with net proceeds of $5, 584 ( 87.25%) to coming Kasumisou Foundation and $816 (12.75%) retained by GlobalGiving which is also a non-profit organization.

As most of you know, this was our first project campaign with GlobalGiving. Like all new things on-line, there has been a technology learning curve.

For the past 10 years, at Kasumisou Foundation, we have tried to thank each of our donors personally by letter. However, in reviewing our successful campaign, we have learned that the information of donors who had checked “ anonymous” is not available to us. Consequently, our only method of contact to these donors to personally express our heartfelt thanks is via project updates through the GlobalGiving site.

We would like to continue our long standing tradition of direct contact with all of our donors and in this regard we would be grateful if you would send your contact information to us at .

New website launch:

Mark has just launched a new website for Kasumisou Foundation. To see photos from our 2009 Summer Arts Camp, please visit the new website at . Click on the “WHAT’S NEW” tab and there is a link will take you to the photo album.

Permission based email list change:

We will soon start using a top rated permission based email firm to handle our future campaign emails. Our goal is to eliminate annoying duplicate emails and have a 100% permission based email list. This will also you an immediate “opt out” ability should you wish to be taken off our list. Again, there is a technology learning curve and we are doing our best to be current with the times.

Thank you again! Our efforts are only possible because of the generous support of friends like you!
