MEcO Pledge Week (Online Pledges)
A Donation Project
Pledge Week is a week-long event held once in both semesters that aims to help one of the beneficiaries of MEcO through selling and being an outlet in spreading advocacies and core competencies of the organization. The project will directly impact the Community Development department of MEcO by funding Save! Campaign which aims to teach Financial Literacy to the Grade 6 students of Kalumpang Elementary School in Marikina.
For the first time since its conception, Pledge Week will be running for a month as it dabbles with an online fundraising platform while expanding its reach outside the premises of the Ateneo. Through this way, we may be able to spread the project’s influence more by knocking on the kind hearts of alumni and backers in lending a hand for this project’s continuous success.
Having been nominated for COA’s Minimum Investment, Maximum Impact Award last 2017, Pledge Week hopes to continue its legacy by engaging the community may it be inside and outside of Ateneo #PledgeToSave
ONLINE PLEDGE WEEK
The Online Pledge Week of Ateneo Management Economics Organization (Ateneo MEcO) directly impacts the Community Development Department of the organization by funding the annual Save! Campaign project for the benefit of one of MEcO's beneficiaries namely, the students of Kalumpang Elementary School in Marikina.
In Save! Campaign, students are taught financial literacy through the concepts of budgeting, needs vs. wants, the difference between emergency and impulse buying, saving, and borrrowing money.
Donating to Pledge Week allows the funding of Save! Campaign's materials such as school supplies and modules to be able to teach the kids effectively each year.
With the help of The Spark Project, we may be able to spread the project's influence more by knocking on the kind hearts of benefactors in lending a hand for this project's continuous success.
