Holiday Lights at Moorpark College announces new online fund-raising program for supporters
The Moorpark College Foundation has launched a new online outreach program for its inaugural Holiday Lights at Moorpark College festival and fund-raiser on Dec. 3, 2011. The nonprofit Foundation has tapped a unique crowdsourcing platform.
Since the launch Sept. 16 of a platform designed by Westlake Village-based Invested.in, the Holiday Lights site has raised more than $1,200.
“Holiday Lights at Moorpark College was fashioned as a unique event in our area, and we wanted to try something different to invite the community,” said Dr. Pam Eddinger, President of Moorpark College. “We have a compelling concept – get as many holiday lights as possible on large building in a grand holiday celebration. This program allows for easy community involvement, and it’s fun to watch it grow.”
The site offers visitors sponsorship options – to sponsor “points of light” – for as little as $5. For each sponsorship, donors can leave messages for loved ones, friends or family members for inclusion in the event program. They also can engage other event supporters in the site’s comments section, and share the project through social media sites. Supporters can ‘like,’ ‘follow’ or contribute to the project to make an impact and raise awareness.
