72 HOURS = One Thousand Dollars

Update:  We did it!  Thank you for helping me reach my personal fundraising goal for #SAF. I will be sending the handmade cards with my thank you notes - the drawing for the "Cris" prize will be on July 1. The winner and all the $100+ donors need to message me re: what they would like me to do... 

Hi friends!

It's that time again. Time for my annual online campaign for Student Action with Farmworkers.

As in prior years, I am having a drawing of all my donors for a "Cris" prize - curated cheese selection, fly-fishing lesson, vegetarian casserole, music video to your favorite pop song, one hour consultation (tax prep, event planning, board development) - whatever.

This year, I will also offer this same gift for EVERY donor of $100 or more. Really.

Also, every $25 donor will receive a handmade card and photo.

So, why do I do this? While it may seem frivolous to offer stunts and free services in return for your gift, I am very serious about raising my fundraising goal each year for SAF. This organization not only does the work in the fields and with its coalition partners, it does this work while cultivating young activists, arming them with the tools they need to be socially conscious organizers in their home communities. Read more about SAF's Student Organizing Programs...

Funds earned through my campaign may not only be used to run these life-changing programs, but can also go towards the over $15,000 in scholarships SAF awards to its participants at the completion of their placements. Read more about our alumni... 

Breakdown to reach goal:

 One $1000 donor (receives a free service or performance of a stunt and a handmade card)

or two $500 donors (both of whom receive a free service or stunt and a handmade card)

or four $250 donors (all of whom receive free services or stunts and handmade cards)

or ten $100 donors (all of whom receive free services or stunts and handmade cards)

or  twenty $50 donors (all of whom receive handmade cards) 

or forty $25 donors (all of whom receive handmade cards) 

or one hundred $10 donors (all of whom will be thanked on this website and facebook)

Please donate what you can now . The drawing for the "Cris" prize will be made when my campaign ends July 1!

Thanks so much for all you do,

ABOUT 2012-2013 Farmworker Awareness Campaign

SAF's grassroots fundraising goal is to raise $20,000 through online fundraising and house parties!

SAF uses money raised from individuals to:

  • conduct outreach to students and farmworkers,
  • provide training, stipends, and scholarships for our interns, students organizers, and youth,
  • share documentaries and presentations with the general public, and
  • provide a living wage and full benefits to our staff

Thanks to those that have already donated this year through our 20-year anniversary sponsorships. We hope that you will consider giving again to help sustain our work for the next 20 years.
