Our heartfelt thanks to the many of you who have supported us through the years and continue to support us. This couldn't happen without you!!
Donations and Administrative Costs - Where does your donation go? 100% of your donation will go directly to providing a girl with tuition support. Our limited administrative costs are covered primarily by the Board of Directors in both monetary and "in kind" donations and by donors who have designated their contribution for administrative purposes.
The Ugandan Girls Scholarship Foundation is a registered charity. Official tax receipts will be issued to Canadian donors.
Here's how YOU can make a difference:
$20 will buy a treated mosquito net. Malaria remains the largest cause of death in Uganda.
$50 Cdn will buy school supplies for one child for an entire year including uniform, books, a backpack, basin and a travel trunk.
$750 Cdn will cover the entire cost of a child for one year in boarding school including accommodation, food, and school supplies.
$Any Amount will make a difference. We will pool all donations received to deliver the maximum impact.
Cheques should be made payable to “Ugandan Girls Scholarship Foundation” and sent to:
2748 Lionel Crescent SW,
Calgary, AB Canada
Etransfers can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please add your mailing address (for tax receipt) in the etransfer comment box.
We're having difficulty with our Paypal account. It isn't always behaving the way it should! We're getting it sorted out but in the meantime please consider donating by cheque or etransfer, instructions above. Thanks!
Are you able to make a large or long term donation? Perhaps you, or a group you know, would be able to provide $750/year for 6 years to support a student from S1 through S6? We would be happy to "match" you with a student. We will let you know everything we know about her and provide the opportunity to correspond if you choose to.
If you are interested in sponsoring one of our graduating students through university we would also be happy to discuss them with you. The costs will vary depending on their program of study and the institution that they attend. The opportunities to make a lasting impact here are endless!
Other ideas…hold a fundraiser with your friends. Do a 50:50 draw at your next family reunion, throw a party and charge a small cover fee, put a "small change" container on your desk at work, have a garage sale, get creative!
The Ugandan Girls Scholarship Foundation Board of Directors thanks you for all you have done and all you continue to do. Feel free to reach out to discuss donating, sponsoring or any creative ideas you'd like to share!
