In case you missed it, Students for Sensible Drug Policy is in the final two weeks of a year-end matching gift challenge. Our Esteemed Trustees 4Front and Green Lion Partners have joined together to give $50,000 in matching funds to help support our work. That’s an extra $50,000 to mobilize students to support cannabis reforms, advocate for harm reduction, and provide drug education to communities. Plus, it’s an opportunity for you to make your philanthropic dollars go even further: make a gift before midnight on December 31 and your tax-deductible donation will be matched. There’s no better time than right now to invest in the future of drug policy reform and the continued success of the movement and industry.
#SSDP2019 is the perfect opportunity to leverage your gift to support as many student leaders as possible. Next March, the SSDP family will gather in Chicago for our annual global conference where we’ll learn, connect, and build a movement for sensible drug policy. SSDP2019 is the most valuable skills-building event our student members will attend this year, and for many students, the cost of traveling to a conference can be a barrier even for the most frugal budding activists.
Supporting SSDP2019 with sponsorship or a scholarship fund gift is a great way to pay your success forward, plus it’s a valuable opportunity to expose your brand to our network of 60,000 drug policy reformers who will see your logo repeatedly via web, print, and in-person impressions. You’ll set yourself apart as an industry leader who stands against the entirety of the War on Drugs and knows that students are the key to building a future where safety, justice, and education are prioritized in drug policy.
