2,068 in 2017: we will #ReachOurFuture!

Friends,

That’s right, thanks to the support of our community we served 2,068 scholars with hands-on 21st century learning in 2017!

We at Digi-Bridge are grateful to look back on 2017 as a year of significant progress towards bridging the digital divide.

This year, Digi-Bridge has:

  • Grown our #STEAMSaturdays family by adding two more sites – Briarwood Academy and Montclaire Elementary
  • Hosted four community Code-In events with the help of Google Fiber, including our first ever #FamilyCodeIn
  • Surpassed our fundraising goals with two different giving campaigns – #ActivateSummer and #GivingTuesdayCLT
  • Launched our second successful Robotics Squad programming, this time at Renaissance West Community Initiative
  • Renewed our commitment to computer science education for all students (#CSForAll)
  • Created new educational partnerships with other passionate organizations, including Harvey B. Gantt Center for African-American Arts and Culture, Freedom School Partners, Cabarrus County Libraries, Opera Carolina and Brookstone Schools

We’ve made tremendous progress this year and look forward to continuing this work in 2018!

You made #GivingTuesdayCLT a huge success!

Friends,

Wow! We at Digi-Bridge are blown away by the support from our community during #GivingTuesdayCLT. We raised $10,214, exceeding our goal! Here’s how that breaks down:

  • $6714 in individual gifts
    • Including $1915 in gifts made as a part of a three year commitment to Reach Our Future
  • $2500 as a match committed by Tresata
  • $1000 as a match committed by OrthoCarolina Foundation

As a reminder, these funds go directly to providing 21st century learning opportunities to Charlotte’s K-8 scholars in the form of hands-on STEAM learning, robotics and computer programming.

If you were unable to give yesterday, know that we’re still eager to engage you! The Reach Our Future campaign, which aims to raise $1M in a year to keep these opportunities available to our scholars for the next three years, will run until next November. You can learn more and make your gift here.

Thank you for your commitment to Digi-Bridge on Giving Tuesday. Now, let’s Reach Our Future!

With gratitude,

DJ

Double your impact today: #GivingTuesdayCLT

Friends,

Great news! It’s Nov. 28, which means it’s your turn to be a part of the biggest giving day that Charlotte has ever seen! Giving Tuesday is the annual global day of giving everyone is talking about, and the Queen City is taking it by storm.

Now in its fourth year, #GivingTuesdayCLT is a day for the Charlotte community – families, businesses, students and others – to come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give. Be a part of the Giving Tuesday CLT movement!

Digi-Bridge’s goal is to raise $10,000 towards our Reach Our Future campaign, a yearlong goal to raise $1M that will allow us to serve 1000 Charlotte-Mecklenburg scholars per year for the next three years with hands-on, 21st century learning opportunities. This campaign is about offering high-quality programming to all scholars in our community and strengthening our voice in rooms where policies are made. And we can’t do it without you.

Our friends at Tresata and OrthoCarolina Foundation have stepped up to ensure that your gift goes further, but today is the last chance for your gift to be doubled! We hope that you will consider making a three-year commitment, as the scholars in this community are our scholars, and investing in them is investing in a future we all share.

We would love to have you join us on this journey. You can make your gift at bit.ly/FutureDB.

Let’s #ReachOurFuture!

With tremendous gratitude,

DJ

Now in its fourth year, #GivingTuesdayCLT is a day for the Charlotte community – families, businesses, students and others – to come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give.

Digi-Bridge’s goal is to raise $10,000 towards our Reach Our Future campaign, a yearlong initiative that will allow us to serve 1000 Charlotte-Mecklenburg scholars per year for the next three years with hands-on, 21st century learning opportunities.

We are excited to announce that both Tresata and OrthoCarolina Foundation have stepped up to ensure that your gift goes further! The organizations will be matching your gifts throughout the campaign. In the coming days, you’ll learn more about their gifts and how you can maximize your impact.

During #GivingTuesdayCLT, we hope that you will consider making a three-year commitment to help us continue to serve 21st century learners in Charlotte.
