As the World Cup winds down, so is the DC SCORES Kick, Click, & SCORE Challenge. A few weeks ago, we initiated the fundraising campaign with Executive Director Amy Nakamoto juggling a soccer ball and making calls to donors on the corner of 18th and M streets for two days.
The goal was to raise $130,000 to fill a revenue gap for the financial year ending Aug. 31. While that likely won’t happen, considering we’re at $53,174 right now, there is still time to make a difference.
There are three days remaining in the Challenge – it won’t end until the Netherlands or Spain is crowned a champion – and every dollar donated will help support our unique program for over 700 District elementary and middle school kids.
We are doing everything we can to avoid cutting any programming elements for the kids we serve at 23 schools, and you can lend a hand – large or small – in making this happen.
Check out the video above for a fun recap of the challenge, and visit kickclickandscore.org to make a donation.
