Here are ways you can support The Pando Initiative.
DONATE $: Being a non-profit organization, we are funded by community organizations, grants and donations. Your support through a monetary donation is always welcome and can be designated for specific items (incentive drive, school supply drive, etc). If you are interested in making a monetary donation, click on the DONATE Icon on the top of our page and it will take you to our online donation portal. If you would like to send a check, please mail it to: The Pando Initiative, 412 S. Main, Ste 212, Wichita KS 67202.
HOST A BACK-TO-SCHOOL SUPPLY DRIVE: At the beginning of each school year, we need help from our community to ensure each child shows up for that first day of school prepared with a new backpack, pen/pencils, paper, tissues, just like other students. If you are interested in hosting a Back-to-School Drive for our students, call us at 316-973-5110 or email kblucher@thepandoinitiative.
ORGANIZE AN INCENTIVE DRIVE: Incentives encourage students to reach their greatest potential by positively reinforcing their efforts to reach their goals. They are individualized and match up with each student’s interests (e.g. ear buds, toys, sports equipment, t-shirts, gift cards). By organizing an incentive drive you help us focus our resources on our staff rather than spending time finding incentives. We appreciate and value your support! Call us at 316-973-5110 or email shislop@thepandoinitiative to receive a list of incentive items!
