Our Orphanage in Kampala, Uganda has a $10,000 yearly payment due January 1, 2023. We need to raise these funds in order to keep the Orphanage home. This is a rent-to-own policy. We initially owed $50,000. We have paid this year's payment, which leaves a total of $40,000. This is due in four more yearly payments.READ MORE
Problem We Are Trying to Solve
Raise $10,000 yearly payment.
How We Are Going To Do It
We will be working on this in several parts.
Part 1: Online Auction Fundraiser: September 2-11, 2022
Partnering with GalaBid Online Auction platform, we plan to run this from Friday, the 2nd, through Sunday, the 11th. This ten day online auction features trips and some great items to bid on.
Part 2: Email our existing donors and ask for a donation to this Fundraising Campaign.
Part 3: Contact local and national companies asking them to sponsor our Campaign.
Part 4: Social Media: We will be posting the Fundraising Campaign on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. We will ask existing donors if they would help pay for some ads on Facebook. Most of our social media work will be utilizing the free features and posting updates of our campaign.
The Marie Wright Children's Foundation located in Kampala, Uganda which serves orphans and vulnerable children will be the beneficiary of these funds. They run a non-profit orphanage that is registered with the government of Uganda. You can go to https://marie-wcf.org and read all about their projects and the work that they are doing with the orphans and vulnerable children. We are the fundraising 501(c)3 platform for the Marie Wright Children’s Foundation. We have a 501(c)3 in the United States.
