In #HamOnt, we have a strong and vibrant online community. This is a selfless online crowd-funding campaign that aims to engage Hamilton’s passioniate digital community to turn social media into social action.
When you contribute to the #HamOntForever fund, your money will be used as part of a yearly grant for local organizations working on improving digital literacy.
What makes the fund extra cool, is our online time capsule that #HamOntForever donors can contribute to. Check out what people have added to the capsule already.
My Hamilton of the future leaves nobody behind. It is proud of where we've come from but not rooted in the past. It is smart and caring and not afraid to admit our failings or shortcomings.
It's not Brooklyn, or Portland or any pale imitation of any other place. It's simply and originally 'The Hammer'. My hometown, a work in progress, but getting better every day.
In #HamOnt, we love to talk — online and off. But not everyone has access to our strong and vibrant online community. That's why we're establishing the #HamOntForever Fund to raise money to be granted in support of digital literacy programs.
This is a selfless online crowd-funding campaign that aims to engage Hamilton's passionate digital community for social media into social action.
When you contribute to the fund, your money will be used as part of a yearly grant, determined by the good kids at the Hamilton Community Foundation, for local organizations working on improving digital literacy.
What makes the #HamOntForever Fund extra cool is our online time capsule that #HamOntForever donors can contribute to. Based on your donation level, you can include a hashtag, tweet, post or even a video that will be tucked away for 15 years. Want to name the capsule? That's up for grabs too!
We're hoping you'll include a message or wish for Hamilton in the year 2030, when the time capsule will be opened at Hamilton Community Foundation's anniversary celebrations. As part of their commitment to this campaign's success, they will match every dollar donated up to $10,000, so your dollar goes further.
Then at Hamilton Community Foundation's anniversary celebrations in 2030, the capsule will be opened to reveal our dreams, desires, and aspirations for #HamOnt, and reflect on how this fund has helped fuel those goals.
In other words, donate and you'll improve digital literacy in Hamilton AND get to be apart of a time capsule. #WinWin.
