Disaster Relief


This project will save us $3,500, allowing us to save 2 children.

What We Need

  • Creation of a strategic plan for an online crowdfunding campaign
  • Step-by-step guidance throughout the implementation of the campaign
  • Evaluation at the end of the campaign to gauge effectiveness and guide strategy for future campaigns

How This Will Help

The success of our organization depends on securing sponsors, donors, and golfers. Without your help, we cannot raise funds for our upcoming CCOC Golf Charity Classic. Your skills will empower us to rescue and treat more sick children from Chernobyl.

What We Have In Place

We currently have Facebook, Twitter, eblasts, Board members and current donors which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have an extensive donor list and the ability to provide any other information you need.
