July 2014: Can we agree on KG's model? Share your comments after browing through a 8 page presetnation on KG model/log frame here
This is an annual call to KG members. Filling out this survey will retain your status as a KG Member for 2014. Last year, KG gave 3000+ gifts, which was three times more than the previous year. In particular, we are seeing an increase in the number of first-time donors.
Our focus is on running the Gifts Program where we inspire individuals to donate for gifts. These individuals, often skeptical, are generally won over by the fact that 100% of their money goes towards beneficiary, none for the admin. This is possible because members' contribution pay for institutional expenses.
This also keep KG free of foreign aid / development dollar, hence demonstrating an innovative model of social change in a country that had been grown tired and suspicious of traditional development practices.
For 2014, we need to raise USD 1,000 per month for KG's admin costs (covers 5+ staff, rent & utilities, office supplies etc.) We hope you will continue to support KG as a member by filling out this membership survey form.
Update end January 2014:
Thanks to those you filled out the membership form for 2014. We raised commitment of 45%. KG will borrow the remaining from the KG-Trust and KG-USA and hopefully, in the coming months, we have to find ways to reach 100%. You can help by asking a friend or two to fill out the same membership survey form.
Dec 2013: KG's strategy is to focus on Gifts Program. Towards that the following changes are implemented:
Do let us know if you have any comments or questions about these changes.
