Border Crossers is meeting a critical need for racial justice programming in New York City schools. Join us in meeting that need.
Have you heard? Over the past year, Border Crossers’ programs have grown beyond our wildest dreams. Our work has gained record momentum and we need your support to ensure its success! In the past year alone we have impacted over 21,000 children.
Since this time last year, we have:
>> Provided training and tools for over 700 teachers.
>> Presented at over 20 conferences and universities nationwide.
>> Continued ongoing partnerships with 10 schools.
>> Been featured in three national publications.
>> Visited the White House as part of the Initiative on Education Excellence for African Americans.
>> Helped in the making of a documentary film on children and race.
>> Quadrupled our earned income.
A ton. Over the next year we will increase available resources for teachers, deepen our school partnerships, and collaborate with other organizations on citywide initiatives.
I hope you will share in this exciting moment by renewing your support of Border Crossers. This year, due to the generous contributions of two visionary donors, all donations made to Border Crossers will be matched – up to $10,000.
Each week, we will be launching a new campaign. Get your friends, family, coworkers and neighbors to support racial justice work in schools. Get updates on facebook.com/bordercrossers and twitter.com/bordercrossers!
Thanks to you, we successfully completed our December 2 $1,000 Matching Challenge. In fact, we raised $1,010 in small donations in 12 hours.
Our generous donor has agreed to match the full $1,010, bringing in $2,020 for the organization in one day. This funding is so important to our programs this year. As a small organization, your donations make a huge impact.
Thanks again for partnering in this racial justice movement. In 50 years, I hope you will look back and be proud. #bcitstime
