Resources and Fundraising Tips

Here you will find ways that you can get involved! We are in an early phase of developing the One City Scholarship Fund. There is much work to do. In the meantime, we have four actions we would ask you to consider:

  1. Spread the word among your colleagues and on social media to your broader circle about One City. We’re “onecityfund” both on facebook and on Twitter. You can use one or several of the attachments as needed;
  1. Consider raising $500 or more from your circle for One City; tell the stories about the remarkable students you teach who have excelled in spite of the low income circumstances they have experienced;
  1. Encourage your colleagues to join the One City fundraising initiative. While the Fund will be partnering with members of the community, the primary driver for One City is teachers supporting students.
  1. Let us know about your efforts.
