Despite the smaller number of schools participating in the program this past year, those students who did participated learned a great deal about:
a) environmental science
b) nutrition basics.
What challenges did or does your project face?
Over the past several years, fewer organizations are funding this type of program, which impacts the number of schools we are able to work with, and therefore, decreases the number of students we are able to reach.
How are you working to overcome them?
We have increased our efforts in individual donor fundraising, and initiated a CrowdRise campaign.
We have also greatly increased our social media presence.
What did you or your project learn this season that might be useful to others as well?
Generating ongoing and new potential donor interest and supports requires consistent contact via mail, email, and social media.
