What an amazing fundraising campaign!!!

April 07, 2016

We are absolutely blown away by the generosity and support that our community and donors have shown. With your support, we raised $8,000 -- which was 177% of our initial fundraising goal!

We are excited to continue working on the project and to launch the web app this fall, sharing it with our community. We'll keep you all in the loop about progress on the app and are looking forward to inviting you to the official launch at the end of the year.

Thank you for your continued support,

Michal and the Languages of Boise Team

Announcing the Great Wall Weekend Match Challenge!!

April 02, 2016

We're amazed at the wonderful support we've received so far. Following our announcement of the $500 Matching Challenge sponsored by Rick and Varda Temkin, we received over $500 in less than 24 hours!!!

Seeing how excited everyone has been about this project, our friends at Great Wall Restaurant in Boise decided to offer a $200 match challenge to help us raise even more money.

In the next 48 hours, every donation will be matched by Great Wall Restaurant -- up to $200.

Thanks for your continued support of our project!

One week left... Announcing a $500 Matching Challenge!

March 31, 2016

Thank you for contributing to the Languages of Boise project! Your support and generosity are very much appreciated!

With just one week left in our PonyUp campaign, we're are excited to announce that Rick and Varda Temkin want to ensure we meet our stretch goal and will match every new donation made to our project up to $500. If you haven't already given, please give. Even a small gift has a huge impact on our project and now, it has double the impact! Please share with your friends and double the donation power!


March 18, 2016

Thanks to overwhelming support from our community, we’re fully funded in a little under two weeks!  Thank you so much for your donations and for continuing to spread the word about our project.

At this point, we'd like to announce a stretch goal for our project -- we're shooting for a total of $6,000 (or just over $1,400 more). This new goal will allow us to pay our consultants and hold two extra interpreter workshops to make recordings for the final app.

Please continue sharing our project! We couldn’t do this without you.

Thanks so much!
