And other opportunities to support local fundraising efforts
Good Morning, Burlington!
It’s always a good day to support local organizations, and today we’ve got three for you.
First is the Raffle Rouser, created by the Friends of the Burlington Public Library. From now until September 29, you can buy a raffle ticket and enter to win one of a huge handful of prizes, from gift cards for local businesses & a bag of groceries to homemade textiles and items signed by former local pro athletes Kike Hernandez & Connor Clifton.
Tickets are on sale now at the library. Proceeds from the Raffle Rouser will support Burlington Public Library programming for children and adults.
If you’re passionate about STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics) education, right now is a great time to support a local business and have your contribution count three times.
Einstein’s Workshop is a woman-owned local business focused on growing K-12 students into innovators in STEAM, and they’ve been accepted into a grant program which will be double-matched by the Massachusetts Growth Capital Corporation until they’ve met their goal.
The grant focuses on woman-, veteran-, and minority-owned businesses, and funds will be used to purchase new computers and equipment to replace outdated (8-10-year-old) computers, including Chromebooks that are so old they can no longer be updated with new software!
You can make a donation (matched by Einstein’s Workshop) toward a scholarship for a family who could use one; additionally, there are incentives, like credits toward classes and gifts made at Einstein’s Workshop, at each level of giving. To support this innovative local business and have your contribution matched 2:1, donate now. Read more about Einstein’s Workshop below.
Finally, the BHS Volleyball Team’s Spike Out Cancer fundraiser is on October 15, and t-shirts are now available to support the fundraising efforts. They’re pretty awesome this year; buy yours.
