TAG + Bellingham Codes Scholarship Fundraiser launched

By March 31, 2021Community, TAGNW

TAG is proud to announce a collaboration with the Bellingham Codes community to launch the TAG + Bellingham Codes Scholarship Fundraiser. Our goal is to raise $5,000 in April to deliver a student scholarship for the 2021-2022 academic school year for each of our local colleges and university: BTC, NWIC, WCC, and WWU.

See the TAG + Bellingham Codes Scholarship Fundraiser website to see how you can easily donate via Paypal or check, and create your own individual or business matching campaign.

Great news! Technology Alliance Group for Northwest Washington (EIN 85-2170683) is now a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Your donation is tax deductible and likely qualifies for employer matching. Reach out to your HR Department to determine if and how your employer supports donation matching or inquire with TAG directly. TAG is also registered in Corporate Social Responsibility platforms (CSR), such as YourCause, to simplify managed donations for participating organizations. Here is the IRS W9 form needed to establish employer matching.

The TAG Scholarship has raised $5,000 annually for more than 15 years in support of local STEM students. Like so much over the past year, COVID has put that at risk with the cancellation last summer of TAG Bash Student Scholarship Fundraiser event due to event restrictions. With the help of the Bellingham Codes community leading the special TAG + Bellingham Codes Scholarship Fundraiser we can deliver the annual student scholarship donations NOW when they are so incredibly needed. Thank you to the Bellingham Codes community for this collaboration in support of students in need.
