Hello, cherished donor!
Thank you again so much for giving to the KUGS Scholarship Fund. We’re so close to hitting our goal–and we want to get there by the end of the year.
We know you already donated—seriously, thank you!—so we wanted to let you know about a couple of other ways you can help us seal the deal on this important scholarship.
1. Tell your friends! Cognitive research has shown that social sharing really does help move the needle. If you haven’t already, we would LOVE if you could share the link to the fundraiser along with one of our images (see below!) and tell your audience why you gave, what we’re doing, and why this matters. Even just a couple of small donations from your friends and family can make a huge difference—it’s what got us this far in the first place.
2. Find out if your employer has a matching program. A lot of folks don’t even realize that their boss will chip in to causes that their employees care about. Ask around and see if your gift can go even further.
3. Ask that donations be made in your honor this holiday season. Ok, ok, it’s one of the greatest Seinfeld jokes of all time, but seriously? Most of us don’t need another pair of fuzzy slippers. Instead, ask that your family or work holiday giving include a charitable aspect, and put KUGS on the list!
4. Participate in Giving Tuesday! December 3 is Giving Tuesday - a date that is globally recognized for annual community support and giving. Save the date and post on December 3 with the hashtag #GivingTuesday to join the movement.
And that’s it. Super-easy. We’re so close to our goal—just $6,889 away!—and we’d love to get this thing tied up with a red ribbon by the end of the year. Imagine how exciting it’ll be to start the new year with a brand-new, first-time scholarship for kids who just want to play music and learn about global affairs.
Thank you again SO MUCH for your gift! We seriously, seriously wouldn’t be here without you.
Have a great rest of your year,
— Casey + Kyler + HBO + SAL
