In the previous post, we discussed the resources that will be required to finish our app and expand its geographic coverage nationwide. In this post, we will describe what you can do to help make that happen.
One of the best ways to help Johego is to volunteer your time and talents. To that end, Johego is excited to announce three opportunities to join our team! If you are interested in applying for any of our volunteer positions, please click on the corresponding image below or visit our Volunteer page for more information.
Johego is looking for volunteers to serve on its 2016 Board of Directors. We are especially looking for individuals who are experienced with one or more of the following disciplines: finance, fundraising, human resources, information technology, legal matters, marketing, and public relations. If you would like to take a leading role in our efforts to revolutionize community development, please do not hesitate to apply!
Johego is looking for individuals with a strong background in programming and/or mobile application development to assist with finishing our app and expanding its coverage nationwide. If you have a knack for this kind of work and want to contribute to community development in an innovative way, please do not hesitate to apply!
As a 501(c)(3) charity still in its infancy, Johego is looking for individuals with significant fundraising and/or marketing experience to assist with developing a sustainable base of financial support. If you would like to help out with this critical endeavor, please do not hesitate to apply!
Another way you can help Johego is by making a financial contribution. As we indicated in our previous post, Johego is trying to raise $160,843.13 in order to pay for staff, subcontractors, and IT infrastructure during the coming year. To date, Johego has been supported almost entirely out of our personal savings, which is not a sustainable model.
Although we do our best to minimize our expenses and to seek out charitable grant opportunities, your support is essential for building on our existing work and bringing this project to scale. We especially appreciate automatic monthly giving, since that provides us with a greater degree of confidence about future revenues.
If you are interested in making a donation, please click on the button below or visit our Donate page.
As a reminder, because Johego is a 501(c)(3) charity, your donations are tax-deductible! Moreover, every new donor, no matter how small his or her contribution, broadens our base of support, which is an important metric we can show to charitable foundations and other large donors. With that in mind, please visit our Donate page and make a donation if you are able.
Perhaps the easiest way you can help Johego is by spreading the word about what trying to do. In particular, if you know anyone who may be interested in helping Johego revolutionize community development, we encourage you to facilitate an introduction. In the meantime, if you haven’t done so already, please connect with us on social media:
With that in mind, please share this post on whatever platform(s) you are active. The coming months will determine whether we can generate enough momentum to finish our app and expand its coverage nationwide. Thank you so much for your support!
