  • Intro!!

    Hi Givology Team, I'm really excited to be a part of Givology this summer as an intern. This is a fantastic opportunity for me to learn more about marketing and public relations, as well as give back to my favorite nonprofit organization. :) I live in San Diego, California, and I am going to be a junior at Canyon Crest Academy High School. I have been president of the Raven Conspiracy for one year now. This past year, my team and I have led fundraisers, investigated ways to get the word out more, and began identifying new partnerships with schools in India. An ongoing fundraiser we have is using GoodSearch, the search engine that donates one penny per search to a non profit of your choice. Another fundraising idea we liked was holding different Restaurant Nights. We would pick a date with a certain restaurant, hand out flyers, and anyone who eats there that night will have a portion of their bill donated to Givology. My club and I are very excited to continue the Raven Conspirac...
  • Who Knew Fundraising Could Be So Easy?

    Think about all the times you've opened up a new tab on Google, Bing, or MSN to search for something. In June 2009, approximately 304 million searches were conducted daily on Google's search engine alone. Now imagine if, for every search, 1 cent was donated to a non profit you choose. Thats exactly what Goodsearch, a search engine powered by Yahoo, does. To fundraise for Givology, all you have to do is go to www.goodsearch.com . Type in 'Givology' in the Who Do You Goodsearch For box. After clicking verify, you can see how much money has been donated to Givology so far. Every entry you type in will yield one cent for Givology. You can imagine how much money will pour in for us when many people start using this search engine. But the good feelings don't just stop there. Goodsearch also features GoodShop, an online buying tool that donates anywhere from 25% to 35% of the cost to Givology. GoodShop features pretty much every store you can think of, including Barnes ...
  • Swap Meet Fundraiser!

    The Raven Conspiracy held its first fundraiser on December 5th, 2009. There is an annual swap meet in our high school's parking lot, where vendors, clubs, and the public can hold booths in the hope to sell items and make money for personal use, or in our case, for charity. As a club, we decided to have a table there and sell several items, then donate the money to our chapter fund for Givology. It's really a miracle this whole thing worked out, because we decided to do this just a few days before the actual event. We sold holiday bread, old books and clothes, random knicknacks (jewelry boxes, stuffed animals, homemade earrings, etc.), and several other bake sale items. We had face painting and live guitar entertainment. By the end of the day, we raised a grand total of $182. This successful fundraiser has the members of my club really hyped up! If it wasn't for the unwavering enthusiasm of our club members, none of this would have been possible. Once again, thanks so muc...
