FundEDU Newsletter

FundEDU

We exist to create a world where financial pressures no longer force working students to prioritize work over school, allowing them to achieve their long-term goals.

Overview:

  • Key metric: Engagement (measured by sign-ups to our pilot)
  • What’s going on: Website creation and social media marketing
  • Support area: Looking for more students

Over the last week, we made a simple website for the FundEDU pilot and advertised the site on FaceBook.

So far the FaceBook ad has received 437 impression and 3 clicks. We have also had one student reach out to us about the pilot.

Our next big question is: “will a campaign reach its funding goal without help from the campaigner’s immediate network?”

Next steps:

  • Continue advertising and reaching out to local businesses regarding campaign sponsorship and support
  • Find more students looking to raise funds for small (between $0 and $500) education expenses (books, utensils, lab fees, etc…)
  • Focus efforts on increasing campaign visibility with potential donors

How you can help:

If you are a working student, know a working student struggling to fund his/her education expenses, or are interested in supporting a working student through a small (but meaningful) donation, please let anyone on our team know.
