Funding For The Boys' Room Program

  "It is easier to build strong children, than to repair broken men"

Friends,
I'm super excited about my mentoring and support program that empowers elementary school boys who attend private school in New York City. Given the current climate of the country, it's essential for our kiddos to have a platform. I am not one to ask for help but by not doing so, I am risking setting my affinity program back. So here is my BIG ASK. I am requesting financial support that will lead to the growth and development of The Boys' Room. They include:

Space - Since the pandemic, I have lost my office space. In order to be productive, I wish to have it back. 

Staff - I have a p/t assistant (previous intern) name Bella who has been with me for 2 years. Her love for the program has brought her back and now I'd like to offer her weekly payments so we can build this program together.  

Scale - I am trying to expand this program beyond NYC. In order to do this, I wish to become a member of the  National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS). With this membership, I will have resources to all of the private schools in the US that are within their network. 

OK! Here is a simple breakdown of the annualized version of my budget. (NOTE:This is not my full operating budget.)

ANNUAL EXPENSES:
OFFICE SPACE-$8,400 ($700/mth)
STAFF/ASSISTANT-$5,200 ($100/wk)
NAIS MEMBERSHIP-$1,600
MISC FEES-$4,800 (materials, professional development etc)
MY SALARY-$0

Your support means EVERYTHING TO ME! I'd like to reach my goal by Monday, February 8, 2021. Please share this via email, text and on your social media platforms with your friends, families, colleagues and acquaintances! Want more information about the program? Great! Visit us at https://www.roomforboys.com . Take good care and be safe! 

Yours in equity,

Cindy McField-Asamoah
