An Exciting Opportunity for Johego:
An anonymous supporter has generously offered to sponsor a 1:1 donation-matching campaign on behalf of Johego. This means that, for the next week only, any and all donations to Johego, up to $5,000 total, will be matched dollar-for-dollar.
Why This Matters:
Back in April, Johego had its first-ever in-person fundraiser, and the response from the community was inspiring. Here are some of things your generosity made possible:
- We built a smartphone application on iOS and Android, supporting more than 100 categories of social services and over 1,250 service providers.
- We began formally field-testing our application with social workers, police officers, and other public servants.
- We significantly expanded our team, adding one paid employee, three new board members, and two outside advisors, all of whom make Johego stronger.
- We secured a grant from Missouri Foundation for Health, one of the largest philanthropic organizations of its kind in the United States.
- We successfully applied to, and completed, Square One, a competitively selected entrepreneurship development program.
- We developed partnerships with local nonprofits and for-profit companies that will help us deliver better services and position us to become more competitive for additional institutional support.
You Can Help Us Do More:
With your help, we can keep this momentum going: expanding the geographic coverage of our application, completing formal field-testing, and leveraging that momentum to apply for substantial funding from philanthropic foundations and other target partners. This donation matching campaign means that, for the next week only, any and all donations to Johego, up to $5,000 total, will be matched dollar-for-dollar, thereby doubling your impact.
If you are able, please send us a tax-deductible donation of $50 or more today, so that we can continue to build on our successes:
If you prefer, checks can be mailed to P.O. Box 23261, St. Louis, MO 63156. In any case, on behalf of the Johego team, thank you in advance for your generosity and support.
