Speech and debate activities are challenging, competitive, and require regular practice, coaching, dedication, and hard work. It also requires funding to offset the cost of travel, competition fees, etc.
EdCo partners with the NSDA to help teams throughout the US easily raise the funds they need. Throughout our partnership, teams have raised $410,000. With corporate donations of $500-$20,000, EdCo will award a $500 grant to teams that raise at least $500 (while funds last).
Once you complete the form, EdCo will contact you for next steps on how to donate to the team/s or geographic location of your choice. If you are ready to give today, you can send a check (information below). If you have any questions, contact Amy via email here.
Checks should be made payable to Channel Education Foundation
with a note in the memo that includes the:
- school name
- name of fundraising campaign, and
- the member of the school program that should receive credit for the donation (if applicable)
Please include contact information – either an email or physical address – that Channel Education Foundation should use to send a receipt to acknowledge the contribution.
Be sure that whomever is writing the check includes how they want their name to appear on the team page they are donating to (first name/last name, last name only, anonymous…).
The mailing address MUST INCLUDE Channel Education Foundation’s suite number, SUITE 1202. Otherwise mail will not be delivered and will be returned to the sender.
