One week into the LetzChange Fundraising Challenge ’19, our partner charities are soaring high on enthusiasm and positive energy that this annual fundraising festival always brings in. The much-awaited event made its debut on February 11th and has already led to the participating non-profits raising a cumulative amount of more than INR 40 Lakhs.
The Charity Booster Programme, introduced to familiarise non-profits with the concept of crowdfunding, has taken off on quite a positive note. As many as three different charities have already graduated from the programme, and are now aiming for higher rewards under the various Success Slabs.
With as many as 20 active campaigns, Team Everest holds the title of the charity with the most number of active campaigns in the first week, whereas, Vidya Poshak is leading in the Success Slabs (for supporters) with as many as 202 supporters. Speaking of the amount raised, Parivaar Education Society is ahead of the rest with INR 5,07,862 already in its kitty in the first 7 days.
Cumulatively, a total of 1164 supporters have joined hands with us in the first week, and this number is bound to grow manifolds as we move forward into the Challenge.
With the motive to accelerate fundraising for the participating non-profits, LetzChange also brought in a contest called ‘Fantastic First’ during the inception week. Making full use of this opportunity, Vidya Poshak won a reward of INR 10,000 by becoming the quickest charity to touch INR 1 Lakh while Shikshan And Samaj Kalyan Kendra was the fastest organisation to bring the first 100 supporters.
As we move ahead, we congratulate all the charities who have successfully begun their journeys in the first week of this coveted festival. We sincerely hope that the upcoming weeks of the LFC ’19 bring in exciting results for all our wonderful partners.
