General Services Foundation is a youth-led organization that teaches high schoolers how to execute drives, fundraisers, intern, and host events for nonprofits. As we teach our high schoolers necessary life skills, we are also sure to connect with our 30+ nonprofit partners to see how our members can best support their mission. We have been able to raise over $12,000 and 15,000 items for these organizations.
As the giving season rounds the corner, we hope that you will consider supporting us in continuing to support our high schoolers by donating today! As of now, we aid 30 high schoolers through their service journey, but with your help, we can assist more! You can also support our efforts by creating your own fundraising page and promoting our cause.
As we support nonprofits, we are hosting our Giving Tuesday initiative, Double the Joy. We are partnering with 15 nonprofits to raise funds for Open the Joy products. Open the Joy creates emotional intelligence kits for children and this small business is providing an item match for the nonprofits. These nonprofits can use these products to support their corresponding causes from supporting children's programs in homeless shelters to providing them for children's hospitals.
This Giving Tuesday, 50% of the funds raised will be allocated towards our general funding costs so we can support more high schoolers participating in our program. The other 50% will be distributed between the nonprofits in our Double the Joy cohort to support their programs.
