Once again, I would like to thank you for the donation you made to Zajecar Iniitative for our Youth Center. As you may know, this campaign was important for us not only in terms of fundraising for Center’s programs, but also as a learning process and encouragement to increase the base of our individual donors.
In only two weeks, we raised $2,214 from 32 unique donors. We did not reach the goal of $5,000 that was preset in the Accelerator Program. However, we have some great news – Following this campaign, we were invited by the GlobalGiving to continue fundraising through this platform as its permanent partner!
This means that Zajecar Initiative can post multiple projects on GlobalGiving (GG), continue to use platform’s donor management tools, take advantage of GG fundraising and training resources, and participate in many more unique crowdfunding opportunities. We are very glad that GlobalGiving recognized and rewarded our work and determination during the campaign.
We are re-opening the Youth Center on 22 September, after the summer break. Using the funds that you donated, we will be able to offer exciting new programs to young people in Zajecar and Eastern Serbia. On the basis of experience from the June campaign, we will be seeking to increase the community of our donors and make online fundraising efforts even more successful.
We will keep you regularly updated on Center’s activities as well as on important events related to Zajecar Initiative.
