Thanks for visiting my fundraising page for Student Action with Farmworkers (SAF). I’m seeking to raise $738 because this is the amount we need for dubbing the Harvest of Dignity (HOD) video into Spanish. If you haven’t seen it, check out the ½ hour video here.
I have been on the SAF board for almost 4 years now, and am truly grateful for being part of this vibrant, transformative, mission-driven organization. SAF is a nonprofit organization that enables students to engage in solidarity with farmworkers, through: Internships & fellowships with various organizations in NC, SC, VA & TN; a leadership development program with farmworker youth in Benson, NC; & student participation in different farmworker campaigns. SAF isalso well-respected for its leadership and collaborative role in statewide coalitions and with National Farmworker Awareness Week.
I am asking you to give to SAF for the following reasons:
The HOD video is currently subtitled in Spanish, but it needs to be dubbed to Spanish. A film about North Carolina farmworkers needs to be understood by its protagonists, most of whom are fluent in Spanish. Dubbing the HOD video to Spanish requires $3,500 total. We have already raised $2,762, which leaves us a total of $738 that I hope to raise by this coming Friday, as long as you can support me in doing so!
SAF is a nonprofit organization; its EIN is 56-1789014. You can donate here or mail a check to: SAF, 1317 W Pettigrew St., Durham, NC 27705. This campaign ends on Friday, please contribute this week!
SAF's grassroots fundraising goal is to raise $20,000 through online fundraising and house parties!
SAF uses money raised from individuals to:
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.
