Dear Donor, 
 
As we wrap up National Financial Literacy month, I can’t help but reflect on the critical role BizWorld.org programs play in educating and inspiring our communities to create healthy financial habits. When children learn and practice financial concepts such as budgeting, earning income, investing, and saving, we know they are being equipped with the skills they will need as adults to build a secure financial future for themselves.
 
Our winner of the annual Piggy Bank drawing contest is a great example of this. Angelita Dillon, is a 10 year old who has decided to save money for college: “the future”. She is now inspired to pursue a college degree, knows how to manage her money, and sets financial goals for herself. Impressive!
 
On May 5, the Silicon Valley Foundation will host SVGives 2015 to help raise money for impactful local nonprofits in the Bay Area, and BizWorld.org will be part of this exciting campaign!

As a friend and supporter of BizWorld.org, I invite you to join us and donate so we can continue providing the valuable real-world skills that every child needs to thrive, lead and transform their communities through our entrepreneurship programs. Our goal is to reach $50,000 in 24 hours and with your help and financial support, we can make it a reality!

You can start giving today!  Just follow this link:

Warm regards,
