What is March Mentoring Madness?
It’s a fun and friendly fundraising competition between our volunteers that will run from March 1, 2017 – March 31, 2017. Our goal is to raise $10,000 to benefit Boston Public Schools students. Every dollar raised will help us reach this goal. Even a little bit counts!
Why should you participate?
In order to best support students in Boston Public Schools, our programs require the right amount of funding. By participating in March Mentoring Madness, you will help us to expand our programs and reach students who are still waiting to be matched with an academic mentor of their own. In fact, our goal of $10,000 will allow us to match 20 more students in the upcoming school year!
In addition, the competition is fun – and you can win fabulous prizes for yourself and your school!
How to become a March Mentoring Madness champion:
- Set up your fundraising page on our FirstGiving site. This page is where you will direct family, co-workers, and friends to give their support. Get started: https://www.firstgiving.com/bostonpartners/march-mentoring-madness
- Review our toolkit which includes tips, ideas, sample emails, and examples of social media posts that will help you raise funds.
- Fundraise any way you know how. Post stories about your mentoring experiences on social media and ask for donations. Host a raffle, bar event, 80s music dance party, Game of Thrones trivia night – it’s all fair game, so impress us!
