1:1 Fund Kicks Off 2017 Fundraising With Successful America Saves Week Campaign
Five partners of the 1:1 Fund – I Have A Dream Des Moines, Kindergarten to College, Partners for Youth Opportunity, St. Louis College Kids and Wabash County Promise – participated in the 1:1 Fund’s first fundraising campaign of 2017, which coincided with America Saves Week. Started in 2007, America Saves Week is an annual campaign for organizations to promote good savings behavior.
During the week of February 27-March 3, these five partners raised nearly $12,500 from 95 donors. With 1:1 Fund matches and incentives, these partners raised more than $25,000 to help low- and moderate-income children save for college. The 1:1 Fund’s next campaign, celebrating graduations for low-income students across the country, will take place June 12-16.
