This project will save us $9,148 , allowing us to allowing us to hire all materials to conduct 3 tech clubs.

What We Need

  • Clear and effective copy for an annual report that illustrates the Organization’s successes and plans for growth (e.g., descriptions of programs, allocation of funds, and recognition of donors and volunteers)
  • Blueprint of the structure for the annual report, including optimal content, length, and style
  • Suggestions for format and visuals, if applicable

How This Will Help

The success of our organization depends on telling our story about our impact as a young organization. Without your help, we cannot properly address what we do. Your skills will empower us to tell our current and future stakeholders about our work.

We have the materials for you to write our upcoming annual report for FY 2017- FY 2018!

Working with Olu and Kids in Tech was truly a great experience! Communication was great as Olu shared with me relevant documents for the annual report, all of which allowed me to get creative and include information that would help convey Kids in Tech's mission and values. Would strongly recommend working with this exciting organization!
