2024 Uplift Armenia Fundraising Drive

In line with our effort to provide quality programming for Armenian youth, we welcome donations of funding, educational materials / equipment, volunteer time and other resources.  We welcome you to contribute and follow this page as we report progress toward meeting our goals for the annual fundraising drive.

$15,000 will sustain funding for our Learning Center and Garden Project for 2024

This represents about $30 per child within the Village of Lukashin, where our programming is currently offered, a town with a population of 2,200 residents including about 500 children.  Additional funding will help establish a reserve for future years and allow us to expand programing to serve children in surrounding villages. 

In 2023, we had an average of about a dozen children per class.  The more funds we raise, the more children we can serve with our facility. We are breaking down our goal into a request for 500 donations of at $30, representing the average individual weekly income of adults in these Armenian rural communities.  We are recognizing donors of at least $120 (4 units) with membership and donors of $300 (10 units) or more as program sponsors.  Donors of $5,000 or more are considered lifetime members of our organization.

Our annual fundraising drive runs October 2023 through September 2024, but we need your help hitting this target early, so we can ensure continued programing.  Thank you for your support!

2024 Program Budget

Learning Center Expenses = $10,000
This covers the cost of educator salaries, missionary travel, coordination of programing, utilities, cleaning and general program expenses.

Garden Project Expenses = $2,000

This includes greenhouse rent & educator salaries, as well as expenses for the purchase of seeds, fertilizers, containers and other supplies for the horticulture project.

 

Administrative Expenses = $3,000

The cost to serve a constituency 6,000 miles away isn't cheap, but we strive to minimize these expenses.  We use general administrative funds to pay for correspondence, exchange rates, website, marketing, bookkeeping and government filing fees.

Total Budget = $15,000

Fundraising Methodology

  1. What isn't spent annually rolls over to assist with satisfying the next year's goal on December 31 of each year.

  2. If the organization doesn't raise funds in the drive to satisfy the budget needs, we work with the Board to determine how to limit programing and expenses accordingly.

  3. We would love to raise additional funds to help grow our programing in 2024 to proportionately decrease our administrative costs and help more of every dollar reach the children of Armenia.
