Please note that this fundraiser will close on Sunday, April 23rd at 11:59 PM PST. ISACA SV is going to match $1,000, and ISACA SF and ISACA Sacramento are each going to match $500 to whatever amount is raised.
On February 6, a 7.8 magnitude earthquake followed soon after by a 7.5 magnitude aftershock affected hundreds of thousands across Turkiye and Syria. Strong aftershocks have continued to threaten weakened structures. The quakes have taken the lives of over 43,000 Turkish residents and 6,000 Syrian residents, and displaced hundreds of thousands.
As such, the ISACA Silicon Valley, ISACA San Francisco and ISACA Sacramento Chapters have made it our mission to exemplify our purpose, promise, and values by supporting those who are impacted by these events. Through this initiative, we believe that together, the members and patrons of ISACA will be able to make a difference in this time of great need.
For the beneficiary of our collective effort, we have chosen the Syrian American Medical Society who is providing aid to those affected by the earthquake. Your tax-deductible donation will help us support those who are responding to these victims. By supporting organizations such as SAMS, the ability to provide shelter, food, water, and other necessities is crucial to helping these citizens re-build.
Please help spread the word.
As part of our commitment to this cause, ISACA SV has made a $1,000 donation match, ISACA SF has made a $500 donation match and ISACA Sacramento has made a $500 donation match to this campaign.
Lastly, we hope that you'll help us spread the word about this cause to raise awareness in our community. We encourage everyone to get a match from your respective employer for your donation. This will double the impact of your donation. Please also like and share our LinkedIn Post related to this campaign.
