We, at The SCOOP Foundation, are proud to announce the launch of our website, www.thescoopfoundation.com, and the benefit concert we're running to celebrate it so.
The new site will be the heart of the SCOOP universe. We hope it will also be an interactive forum, a space for supporters to get feedback and updates on the projects they are supporting or funding. It will also be a place for them to express challenging ideas and have an input into the organisation. Constant updates, photos, videos and classroom reports will demonstrate the progression of the projects and programmes. It will also all our latest news on events, fundraisers and other such SCOOP developments.
Ahead of the launch, MD Andy Sweeney says: “Our aim for the SCOOP foundation is to create a hub and platform for others to get involved and play a part in changing the lives of the children and the schools we support. We will strive to take on visible and effective projects (schools, workshops etc) at grass roots level, and work hard to generate lasting trust and relationships.
“Getting our website up and running will help fulfill our aim of becoming a trustworthy, transparent and innovative organisation. We see the website as an invaluable tool in showing people how funds are allocated and more importantly, how necessary they are to the children in these projects."
