General operating support, also known as unrestricted or core operating support, is an investment in ConnectED’s mission rather than specific projects or programs. It allows ConnectD to use your generous donation, as we need, to reach our goals—whether for salaries and overhead, to invest in technology, or to fund our valuable programs and services. General operating support represents a vote of confidence in ConnetED and frees our time to focus on mission rather than supplemental fundraising. A General Operating Support gift gives ConnectED the flexibility to take advantage of unexpected opportunities as they arise, and to meet unforeseen needs across our programs throughout the United States. By providing this flexibility, General Operating Support plays a vital role in strengthening ConnectED’s day-to-day operations and in keeping educational standards high within the organization.
