Donors Choose Wrap Up

It's December 1st. November sure went by fast. And so the annual AVC Donors Choose campaign is over. And the results are in:

DC results 2010

We raised $22,400 for classrooms where young women learn science and technology. But because of the HP Match, that will actually be $45k.

More importantly we will impact the lives of 8,543 young women (actually way more because of HP). That's a lot of young women. Maybe one of them will go on to start an important tech company. Maybe one of them will go on to teach other young women. Maybe one of them will go on to get a nobel prize. Whatever happens to these young women, I am incredibly proud of this community's generosity. Thank you.

The HP Match

I got some great news about the Donors Choose Campaign we are running this month here at AVC.

HP will match every dollar we donate in this campaign. They did that last year as well so this is two years in a row that we've been able to leverage HP's generosity for the benefit of teachers and students.

It's a good opportunity to remind everyone that we are focusing this year's Donors Choose campaign on math and science education for young women.

And finally, I'd like to remind everyone that all contributors to this Donors Choose campaign will be invited to a Meetup I am hosting in NYC on the evening of December 8th. Here's the giving page if you want to make a donation and come to the meetup.

I hope we can get a representative from HP to attend the Meetup.
