Fundraising Update: Race for Matching Funds Starts TOMORROW!

We’re overjoyed with pride and gratitude to announce that we have been awarded a BONUS DAY through the GlobalGiving Accelerator!

Tomorrow, Sept. 19, from 9am-11:59pm EDT, every donation made to our project through this link will be matched by 20% from funding provided by corporate sponsors. If you haven’t donated yet, this is a great time to see how far your money can really go!

There are only $10,000 available in matching funds, so the earlier and more you donate, the higher the impact you will have on empowering young people in Uganda. Beyond that, there is a $1,000 cash prize for the organization who raises the most during the bonus day- a bonus bonus that we would love to put to good use for classroom materials, furniture, and additional laptops for our children.

Thanks to you all, we are ranked #9 out of the 629 projects competing in this program! In only 8 days, we have already raised $5,466 from an incredible 34 donations- our goal of $8,403 is looking more attainable every day! We look forward to keeping each of you updated with the impact you’re helping us to make on the future of Gulu.
