Successful #GivingTuesday and #SurgeForMore Fundraiser
On #GivingTuesday, December 1, the Surge team kicked off an online fundraising blitz across the country to echo the focus of Black Friday and Cyber Monday. #SurgeForMore invited individual donors to support Surge and share online what inspires them to #SurgeForMore.
The campaign raised over $26,000, exceeding our goal to raise money for scholarships and Surge Fellowship programming. An anonymous $5,000 matching gift donor was secured before the campaign start and during the campaign, Surge Board Member Nneka Rimmer also provided a $5,000 match propelling us toward our goal!
