  • Presidential Candidates on Education

    [b][u] Donald J. Trump[/u][/b] [i]Local Education[/i] "I'm a tremendous believer in education. But education has to be at a local level. We cannot have the bureaucrats in Washington telling you how to manage your childs education." [i]Common Core[/i] "So Common Core is a total disaster. We cant let it continue. We are rated 28th in the world, the United States. Think of it, 28th in the world. And, frankly, we spend far more per pupil than any other country in the world. By far. Its not even a close second." "[As president I'd] end Common Core. Common Core is a disaster." [i]School Spending[/i] "You could cut that way, way, way down." [b][u] Hillary Rodham Clinton[/u][/b] [i]Local Education[/i] "Everybody is an expert on education because we all went to school. And therefore, local control means that there are millions upon millions of opinions in America about what we should do. I dont think we have reached a consensus that refl...
  • Weekly Blog #3- PEACH Foundation

    Thank you for taking valuable time out of your busy schedules to read our blog! Here are some updates: Givology has officially launched our summer campaign! So please don't forget to post a picture of yourself on a social media site and tag us with #HowILearned. Remember that your photo is a great contribution to helping a child receive better education. We have also uploaded our monthly newsletter to [url=http://us1.campaign-archive1.com/?u=28704930b040cb984766b0d12&id=b260004bde&e=]This link[/url]! This week, our featured partner is the PEACH foundation. The name stands for Promoting Education, Art, and Community Harvest. In general terms, this organization helps students from low-income families in the poorest parts in China. The economic gap in China has been getting wider, and for those who already lacked the necessary monetary support, this trend is very detrimental to the next generation who do not have the appropriate support to climb out of poverty. However, the PEACH ...
  • Weekly Blog #2- Tanzanian Childrens Fund

    The featured organization for this week is the Tanzanian Childrens Fund (TCF)! This blog serves to follow up on our #5 [url=https://soundcloud.com/givology/givology-podcast-5-tanzanian-childrens-fund]podcast[/url] of an interview we did with Peggy Wiles Bacon, the Director of this organization, and offer you background information on what TCF does and what you can do to help them achieve our common goal of creating a better future for impoverished children. The Tanzanian Childrens Fund (TCF), located in the Karatu region of Northern Tanzania, was founded by India Howell in 2003 with the goal of improving the status of education and health for orphans with little money. When the founders realized that children can make no more than two dollars a day, they decided to target the most severe problem these children face- lack of good education. Only 30% of seventh graders from a local primary/secondary school passed the exam to get into high school, the equivalent to losing out an oppo...
  • Givology Impact Series Podcast: Binghamton University

    By Helen Tang Hi everyone! The 5th Givology Impact Series Podcast is up on Soundcloud now, this time featuring our first podcast with one of our university chapters, Binghamton University! You can find it here: https://soundcloud.com/givology/givology-impact-series-podcast-6-binghamton-university In this podcast we are joined with Brett Kanter, the president of Givology Binghamton, as he talks about his chapter and their methods of fundraising and supporting Givology partners. Brett is going into his second year as the president of the chapter, and has previously served as treasurer for Givology Binghamton. The takeaway: The Binghamton chapter did not actually begin as a Givology chapter, but rather as a club named Students for Students International . When it became a full-fledged Givology chapter, it cut ties with all other giving organizations and began to focus solely on Givology. Brett, having having gone club-hopping, stuck with Givology because on the first day of the Givolog...
