The reason you can't fund a student yet
We are excited about launching our first public round of funding on April 15, 2013. It was a hard decision for us to delay the launch, but we are confident it was the right decision. This is our first time creating a non-profit and we want to ensure that we are going through all the proper steps. It's been a learning experience and we thank everyone who has given us advice and mentorship along the way.
The first five students funded through nKoso were done by our close family and friends in order to work out any of the kinks in our process. We felt okay about doing this with people we are close with, but we want to make sure we are 100% legal before accepting donations from the general public.
The good news, we have officially filed everything we need. We are checking on it daily (literally) and are confident this process will be completed soon. We appreciate your patience and are so touched by all the outreach, support, and feedback.
Anna and Sylvester
