Giving Tuesday is Tuesday, November 27 and the Port Of Harlem Gambian Education Partnership is participating in this year’s campaign. Our goal is to raise at least $310, or the amount we have left to raise to reach our 2018 goal of $3,370. However, we welcome the prospects of raising additional funds.
PayPal processes our donations and they have pledged to add 1% to every donation you make from November 27 through December 31. As a non-profit, PayPal charges us only 2.2% plus $0.30per transaction.
Our accounts for Reclaiming a Life, Male Scholarships, and General Overhead remain short. We use funds from our General Overhead account to fund various unexpected and miscellaneous activities including the $192 needed to ship 22 boxes of gently used text books to Latrikunda Lower/Upper Basic School in Latrikunda Sabiji. We unexpectedly received the donated books that are worth about $5,000. The $192 was an unexpected expense we needed to complete this project.
