With more than 280 million people living on less than $1.25 per day in India alone, you'll be shocked to see that even $10 can sometimes mean the difference between life and death.
Did you know you can give a gift that will help children in need forever, even after you or a loved one pass away, by easily creating an endowment?
We're pretty sure there is no better way to spend $30 per month than with a few clicks right here. Once we receive your sponsorship, we'll get to work assigning your scholar. Depending on how many openings are available in our affiliate schools and where we are in our admissions cycle, we might be able to pair you up with a scholar immediately. In other cases, we might just be starting in a new community and it could take a few months until we are able to have everything in order. The earlier you donate the better because we'll have a firmer idea of how many new students we can bring aboard.
Once your scholar has been assigned, we'll send you an email or letter with all the great details and photos. However, that's just the beginning! We're out to empower and inspire you too! If you want to FaceTime or Skype with your scholar, make the trek to India to meet him or her in person, or learn anything more, email us anytime or reach out to us on our Facebook page. We have big plans for connecting our scholars to you to once they're comfortable with their new computers.
And you thought we just did education. Nope! We've treated patients with cancer, tuberculosis, congenital deformities, and dozens of other life-threatening conditions. We provide housing and sustenance to our neediest families and provide health education forums for thousands more!
...and spent more than 22 hours in multiple trains and buses to seek Squalor to Scholar's care! We arranged and funded a surgery that saved her life. She now attends school for the first time in her rural village. Please donate so that we can continue to save more children like Prianka.
When you make an endowed gift, your contribution is invested and becomes part of our endowment. Each year, the interest on this investment is disbursed to the purpose you designate. Since the principal remains untouched, your fund will continue to generate support and impact for eternity.
You can give cash, securities, property, other assets, or list us as a beneficiary on your life insurance policy. You can make your contribution anytime or write Squalor to Scholar into your will.
Let's say you'd like to ensure a charitable organization receives $1,000 every year in perpetuity, and that charity spends 4% of its endowment each year. This means any earnings above 4% are reinvested in the fund so that it continues to grow over time.
To calculate the endowment needed to sustain your gift in perpetuity, divide your gift amount ($1,000 in this example) by the organization's spending policy (4% in this example), which equals $25,000.
Thus, by contributing an endowment of $25,000, you are actually giving $1,000 every year FOREVER!
If your annual gift is:
$30,000 (Support an Entire School)
$5,500 (Support a Full Classroom)
$2,750 (10 Full Scholarships)
$1,100 (4 Full Scholarships)
$275 (1 Full Scholarship)
Perpetuate it by giving:
ENDOWMENTS MAY BE NAMED FOR YOU, YOUR FAMILY, A LOVED ONE....NO MINIMUM AMOUNT
$360 provides a scholarship, books, uniforms, shoes, supplies, support, and healthcare for one scholar for an entire year
$5,000 provides a lifetime endowed scholarship which will provide a scholarship and support for a student every year
Surprisingly, many organizations throw out their used technology! That is tragic!
Instead, let us use them to revolutionize internet access for entire communities and provide new healthcare and education opportunities to deserving people who have never had such possibilities before.
The computer in the photo above was used by hundreds of students at a private school in the United States. Today, it empowers scholars in Faridabad, India. Now that's teamwork for a better planet!
