One Time Donation
For one-time donations only.
Any amount you donate to RUN goes directly to providing for these children. The nonprofit is operated entirely by volunteers so that every dollar a donor contributes directly buys food, water, electricity, beds, and school supplies for the kids.
1 US Dollar is equivalent to about 3,500 Ugandan Shillings (UGX). That means that your contribution can go further than you might think. Here are some examples of what your contribution could cover:
$10 can buy a new, full set of bedding for one child.
$50 can pay for one child's school tuition for an entire school year.
$500 could pay for a new swing set and playground for the children.
Sponsor a Child
For recurring donations only.
With only $35 per month ($410 per year) you can fully feed, house, clothe, and educate one student for an entire year.
Our new funding model makes it easier for you to connect with the student you are supporting. The benefits of sponsoring a child include:
- Communication with your sponsored child, including letters, pictures, drawings, and Skype sessions!
- Direct access to the RUN team to learn of updates and offer ideas.
- Access to our recurring newsletter.
To enter our sponsorship program, commit to a $35 monthly, repetitive donation using the PayPal link!
Why Donate to RUN?
RUN, Inc. is a recognized 501(c)(3) in the state of Massachusetts, meaning that donations will be tax deductible to the extent allowable by law. What does this mean? It means that by donating to RUN, you reduce the proportion of your income that you have to pay to the government!
RUN is entirely funded by the generosity of private and corporate donors. By relying on donors, we allow the children to focus on having a happy childhood and getting a good education.
All donations to RUN directly go to providing for the children. The nonprofit is staffed entirely by volunteers, meaning that if you donate $25, it means that $25 is going straight to running the orphanage. Without an overhead administrative cost, we maximize the impact each and every donation can make.
When you donate, no matter how much, you become a part of our community. We pledge to keep you updated on how your contribution is making a direct impact through newsletters and updates.
