We recognize that not everyone is able to visit Polkadot Library but still have a sincere desire to help and wonder how you can get involved. Here are a few ideas.
You could sponsor/host a private event targeted to a special need of Polkadot ie: books, classroom supplies, textbooks, garden supplies etc. Just pick an idea or reach out to us for a targeted amount that would work for your plans.
Facebook offers many opportunities to create a fundraiser and Polkadot Library is listed as a vetted charitable organization. Maybe you would like to celebrate you birthday with a fundraiser. Or you could create a fundraiser on Giving Tuesday that would create a matching opportunity from the Gates Foundation. Click the Facebook link below to create a fundraiser for Polkadot Library.
Many businesses encourage their employees to become involved in charitable activities or even have separate charitable foundations. Inquire if this is available where you work. Your corporation may even have a matching gift program. This really stretches even a small gift! Your business could sponsor a teacher for one year, provide garden seeds for a season or provide textbooks for one of our primary school grades for one year. Introduce your business to Polkadot Library and let us know if we can help.
If you are in the DC metro area, a member of our Board of Directors could be scheduled to give a presentation at your fundraising event. Just send us an email and we will attempt to make the date and time work for everyone.
You may have some other ideas and we are happy to accommodate them. We want to turn them into a successful charitable event. Even a small amount can make a big difference in the lives of the children who depend on Polkadot Library to prepare them for their future. CLICK HERE to email us your request.
