Nurturing the Genius Campaign
In October 2014, M.O.M.I.E launched our first ever Nurturing the Genius Campaign for 10-weeks with the goal of raising $40,000 from our supporters. We are excited to annouce that through a combination of individual donations, corporate donations, special events, pledges, and a matching grant, we were able to surpass our goal! Funds generated from the Campaign will go towards the following exciting program and organizational needs:
Expanding to two additional school-based sites, at Whittier Education Campus and Lee Montessori PCS, serving an additional 90 children in 2015.
Expanding enrollment at our Georgia Avenue Community Based Facility to continue serving in-need school-aged children in DC Wards 1 and 4.
Deepen and expand our Youth Ambassadors Initiative to encompass high-quality year-round programming that meets the needs of our middle and high school aged youth.
Support increased costs in managing and maintaining our Georgia Avenue Facility so we can continue our role as a community hub.
Increase long-time staff salaries.
