PROJECTS RECEIVING SCHOLARSHIP FUNDS
SCHOLARSHIP FUNDS NEEDED FOR 2017
Sharing Dots is a creative storytelling agency that was founded as a nonprofit to serve humanitarian organizations that cannot afford to pay the full cost of media and marketing resources. We are a full service creative agency that operates on a cost basis to keep our services affordable to small and mid-size organizations.
We keep our costs low by:
- Traveling over land when possible
- Grouping geographically close projects into one trip
- Living in SE Asia to reduce living expenses and travel costs
Even with these cost saving measures many organizations are still not able to afford the cost of our work.
SHARING DOTS SCHOLARSHIP FUND
Each year Sharing Dots raises funds to help bridge the gap between what it costs us to produce work for organizations and what they can pay. We work with each organization to determine how much they are able to contribute to the cost of their project and then look to donors to make up the difference.
Organizations are eligible to apply for funds after they have completed our intake process and have received a project proposal from us.
For 2017 we are needing to raise $20,000 to replenish our grant fund. These funds will allow us to continue to produce media and marketing projects for humanitarian organizations.
Donations for specific projects or specific kinds of work are also accepted. Contact Us for more details.

ARE YOU 501c3?
Yes, we are part of Allegro. They are a 501c3 charity in the US and handle donations that come into our project.
When you donate (if you are from the USA), you will receive a tax deductible donation in the mail.
What is 501c3? 501c3 is a US tax status for registered charities that allows donations to be deducted from the donors tax burden. If you are from the US, this helps you save money on taxes. If you are from another country, this status provides credibility in knowing the organization has gone through the proper steps to become recognized as a charity in the US and is monitored to make sure it is abiding by the standards.
DO I NEED TO BE FROM THE USA TO DONATE?
Nope, however we are only registered as a charity in the US so we won’t be able to provide tax receipts for other countries.
