J2DW is crowdfunding!

Hello everyone,

We are excited to announce that we have taken the initiative to set up a crowdfunding campaign to make it easier for you to contribute to our causes.

Our team sat down a few months ago and came up with a number of goals we would like to achieve over the next few months, but we hit a dead-end in trying to achieve these goals because of a limitation of our financial resources. So that is why we set this campaign up, and we are absolutely confident that you will help us raise these funds.

To give you a better overview of the plans we have for the use of these funds, we have summed up three of our main priorities to achieve once we have the funds:

  • Acquire a service business and restructure it so as to serve as role model business for the message of diversity and good employee management. This business will be profit generating so as to contribute funds to other sectors of J2DW.
  • Campaign and raise awareness of the problem of diversity in the workplace. Too many people are still very ignorant about the issues that exist, and this is in our opinion, unacceptable.
  • Dive deeper into the research of the roots of the problem. Why is diversity still a problem in the workplace? We want to figure out the answer to this daunting question once and for all.
  • In addition, funds will also be set aside to fund a new scholarship that was recently created by the Board.

    The Doris Tretter memorial scholarship for diversity in the fine arts will help youth in our communities be able to access fine arts education at the post-secondary level.

    In addition to or instead of a financial contribution, you can:

    1. Post to Facebook and social media – The more people who hear about us, the more likely we are to meet our target. 

    2. Share with your community – Call your friends, tell your co-workers, make an announcement at your organization’s event to spread the word. 

    Generosity (the platform we’re using, run by Indiegogo) has zero platform fees, so your donation goes farther to help us reach our goal. 

    So please help us by contributing to the crowdfunding campaign. Any donations will be greatly appreciated!
