This content is produced by GOOD with the support of Microsoft
Recently, we asked our community to nominate youth-focused nonprofits to participate in the Give for Youth Challenge on GOOD Maker. Give for Youth, a Microsoft YouthSpark program in partnership with GlobalGiving, helps nonprofits reach new donors and crowd fund for their projects.
The community voted and selected the top 20 organizations, and each now has the opportunity to fundraise on Give for Youth. From March 18 to 27, Microsoft will match funds raised up to $100,000 across the 20 featured organizations. Now is your chance to help bring their projects to life. By making a donation on Give for Youth, you are supporting young people with opportunities for education, employment and entrepreneurship.
Take a look at five of the top twenty finishers, and be sure to check back as we continue to highlight the inspiring organizations you voted for.
