As a hand-working non-profit, we’re always grateful to receive donations from individuals and corporations, but when we received a check from Patrick Engineering, we knew there was more to the story.
The Fundraising Story
“It was an easy process,” Noah Parr explained. “Patrick Engineering has a monthly Casual Friday, where any employee can recommend a non-profit. (…) It was easy to implement. You just need an employee to champion it.”
And champion he did!
The Fundraising Impact
“Anytime you receive a donation or sustained donation from a corporation, it shows the community mindedness of that company,” says SKPL founder, John Zulaski. “It demonstrates that they value their workforce and the future of STEM careers.”
On behalf of SKPL, our public library partners and the many children who get to play with our kits – a big ‘THANK YOU’ to Patrick Engineering!
When asked what his hope was for the future of SKPL, Parr replied “to spread it to every public library in the nation.” A sentiment, we can certainly get behind.
Bring SKPL to Your Workplace
Like Patrick Engineering, some of our most influential supporters started by hosting a happy hour, Casual Friday, or other workplace event benefiting SKPL.
