Youth in Focus recently teamed up with Groupon Grassroots, a team of do-gooders who support local non-profit organizations, for a one-week fundraising campaign starting on May 14th. Through our Groupon Grassroots partnership, we raised $1,400 – enough to fund one student for a full quarter of photography classes at YIF.
Groupon Grassroots, a fully integrated part of Groupon, runs project and campaigns to raise money and build awareness about the impact organizations are making in the community.
In addition to the $1400 raised, an anonymous donor matched each $10 donation we received, so now two students will have the opportunity to attend our free photography classes for one quarter!
