Engagement Adds Value To Investments In Students And Causes You Care About
Foundation grant: A grant to Charitable Words Scholars by the Palo Alto Veterans Research Institute will allow two scholars from Northern Kentucky University to join a team at Stanford University Medical School on a video and storytelling project about research being done on veterans’ depression, anxiety and PTSD.
There are many ways to support Charitable Words Scholars at personally significant levels – and all scholars’ experiences are enrichened by engagement of our network of advisors. You are giving more than dollars. You are giving engagement.
Nonprofit status will allow Charitable Words to raise funding
Good news arrived for Charitable Words last week when it received its 501(c)(3) nonprofit status, allowing it to accept tax-deductable donations.
Friends have offered support since we started this journey as catalysts for collective impact.
We never intended to “scale” with big dollars, hoping for just enough to match a few nonprofits and students or recent graduates to help with the costs of education and do meaningful work to benefit nonprofits in need.
We don’t plan on getting into a major fundraising mode. But here are some suggested ways you can support the Charitable Words Scholars and causes you care about:
Collective impact is a core value of Charitable Words Scholars, so it’s fitting that we hope many will support our cause with small and personally significant contributions. Just a few dollars pooled provides a student with a freelance job or assignment at an event.
Charitable Words has established scholarship programs with institutions involved in our fields of focus. A gift of $500, $1,000 or more can help students with cost of education.
A gift of $2,500 funds a typical 12-16 week internship at a nonprofit, including fair pay for a student, training and development opportunities and guidance by Charitable Words’ volunteer network of advisors.
A major grant by the Palo Alto Veterans Research Institute connected students from Northern Kentucky University and Stanford Medical School in a video project conveying the importance of research about depression and anxiety disorders.
Charitable Words is in the process of developing a board of directors and capacity to manage any funding it may receive.
Until then, we will collaborate with nonprofits and hope that you will give engagement to the students, colleges or causes you care about. Thank you.
Tom and Maureen Callinan and the Charitable Words Scholars
