Thanks to the donations, fundraising pages, and team efforts of supporters like you, we reached our first big milestone this week - raising over 30% of our $50,000 goal for The Great Tech Community Challenge! And we're still going!
Learn more about the campaign here.
We're also thrilled to announce Backblaze as an official sponsor, and that a certain local baseball team has donated an additional prize for the challenge (more info below).
It's truly awesome to see our community coming together in this way and investing so much in the next generation of tech mavens!
Oakland A's Tickets for Top Fundraisers
This is beyond cool. The Oakland Athletics have answered the call and donated 8 tickets to a home game, for the person or team who raises the most by Nov. 3rd! That's in addition to the incentives we've already spotlighted on the campaign page, including tickets to our Finish Line Party for everyone who raises at least $100.
Get started fundraising now and good luck!
