Plank Holder Fundraising

This plank holder fundraising round will ensure our ability to continue development while we await infrastructure grants to be funded.

What is a Plank Holder?

Back when massive ships were built with wood, the initial crew were called plank holders. As we embark on our massive journey, we’d like you to be part of the initial crew. We’re developing a game environment to welcome every student, donor and corporate partner.

Those who empower the Missing Pixel Project to launch, will be considered lifelong plank holders, and immortalized on the entry ship that everyone will first explore in the game.

This ship will be a fun and interactive way for not only our students, but all of our corporate and nonprofit partners, to learn about the program and see what the students will be learning.

And remember, plank holders are for life, and we’re excited to create unique opportunities for you in the years to come. It’s kinda like an environmentally friendly NFT if you’re hip to that tech.

Our goal is to raise $100,000 in the plank holder round.

This will empower us to continue program development while we pursue the grants needed to bring on our full staff. We have an absolutely radical infrastructure team that is 100% behind The Missing Pixel Project and our dream for a self sustaining nonprofit ecosystem.
