My name is Nazair Jones and I'm a student athlete on the football team at the University of North Carolina. I have recently created an organization called MADE Men Mentoring, an non-profit that aims to provide a support system for underprivileged young men in North Carolina by pairing them with college student athletes who will mentor and support them in the areas of academics, competitive athletics, and manhood.
This campaign is to fund the start-up costs of MADE Men Mentoring including filing Articles of Incorporation, obtaining tax exempt status, and purchasing a domain name. I am also supplementing this campaign with my own personal contribution. After completing the tedious work of funding the startup and obtaining proper paper work, we intend to use more formal funding channels such as grants and corporate donations. Then comes the fun stuff-- CHANGING LIVES. I am dedicated to making a profound impact on our youth and I'm asking for your help
We plan to have our official program launch by the end of the summer, leading into the 2016-2017 school year, so your support is crucial to keep on such an ambitious timeline. In order to meet this August 1st launch date, we are aiming to wrap up the fundraising on June 1st.
This organization was founded in loving memory of McGrue Booker, my childhood mentor, who was instrumental in guiding me on my journey to becoming a college athlete and soon-to-be graduate--something I did not think was possible for me, given my family and living situation. It's my dream to pass on this relationship to the younger generation of underprivileged or misguided young men so that they can also acheive something greater for themselves. It would mean so much to me to have your support, however big or small.
If you would like more details about the organization, feel free to contact me at email@example.com and I would be glad to email you a MADE Men Mentoring informational pamphlet.
