Fundraising

Dear Ghana School Aid supporters,

We are getting more and more requests for help in building and expanding schools in Ghana.  Many of these are really good projects, well thought-out, with good channels of communication and reliable people on the ground to administer them.  In addition, projects we have supported in the past apply to us for additional grants to improve their facilities.

CAN YOU HELP US TO RAISE MONEY so that we can continue our help for Ghanaian schools?

  • A Standing Order, (whatever you feel you can afford) would be brilliant.
  • A legacy would also be a huge help, or a donation, perhaps in memory of a loved one, would add much grist to our mill.
  • And there may be among you some dynamic, energetic souls who could swim, run, climb, cycle, trek or walk in aid of Ghana School Aid.

Colin MacBean ran the Edinburgh Half-Marathon for us in May 2014. (He can be supported via his JustGiving page). Jo Hallett swam 4 kilometres in an open water relay in Blenheim Palace Lake (2013), and in 2008 Ruth Court ran the London Marathon in three hours fifty-two minutes, raising £1400 for GSA. In 2017, Paula Moran ran two half-marathons for us, in Hampton Court and Hackney, raising over £1000.  Thank you so much to them.

These are fine examples of wonderful supporters, to whom GSA is immensely grateful.  Please, can YOU do something wonderful for us too?  A hyperlink to our MyDonate page is available below.

You can get lots of ideas by googling  A – Z OF FUNDRAISING IDEAS where you will find several lists of possible activities, ranging from coffee-mornings to bungee-jumping.  There may be something there you feel you could undertake on our behalf.  Please let us know:  we’d love to hear from you.

THANK YOU
