I donated in support of this campaign.
As the city rebuilds a new normal, Harlem Link Charter School provides a foundation. Throughout the pandemic, we supported our virtual learners with a customized curriculum, 400+ school-issued laptops, and an onsite option for families with childcare needs. In September, we reopened our doors to serve 450 students across Pre-K-5 in Covid-safe classrooms, partnering with outside organizations for after-school enrichment through our After All program.
Our afterschool program, After All, allows Harlem Link to support our students and families beyond the school day. Kids gain a space to explore enriching academic and creative activities – activities they would otherwise not be exposed to – while families struggling to balance work and childcare gain peace of mind knowing that their little ones are safe, learning, and growing, even after the school day ends. We work with partners like NASA to connect our students with astronauts aboard the International Space Station, GrowNYC to help build a sensory garden, and the School of Visual Arts to create an art therapy program to help students renew and connect through mindful art-making.
How much time will this take?
As little as 5 minutes! Creating an account is very simple, and once it's set up, you'll have all the tools you need to fund-raise. Of course, if you have a bit more time and would like to customize your own page, that's also an option. It's all up to you!
Will I have to send receipts or thank-you notes when my friends donate?
Nope! Everything is pre-written and automatically generated for you!
What if I don't hit my fundraising goal? Is it on me to make up the difference?
Absolutely not (though we won't stop you). Your goal is your own way to motivate friends and family. Set it to an amount you're comfortable with – it can be as low as $1 or as high as $100,000.
What if I don't want to make my own page, but still want to support Harlem Link?
That's great too! You can always donate directly here; or you can help one of your fellow fundraisers by linking to his or her site. You can also spread the word about our school and what we're trying to accomplish over social media. Every amount, large or small, helps!
