Last year we raised £54,000 for Ibba Girls School through the Big Give matched funding campaign. This year we aim to raise a similar sum for the 2017-18 cohorts of new students, but it all depends again on your generosity on this "Giving Tuesday", Tuesday 29th November 2016.
Please book Tuesday 29th November at 12 noon into your diary now, to have the best chance of doubling your donation to the Ibba girl students
Following the success of last year, we are again taking part in the Big Give, the UK’s biggest match funding campaign, starting on Tuesday 29th November at 12 noon and ending 12 noon Friday 2nd December. Any donation of between £5 and £5,000 during this time will be matched pound for pound while funds last. All donations and match funds are going towards building food and water supply and storage infrastructure, an assembly hall, and a clinic and sick bay – vital facilities so that Ibba Girls Boarding School can take in two more cohorts of girl students in 2017-18.
You can view our project and make your donation here (match funds only go live from 29th November 12 noon): https://secure.thebiggive.org.uk/project/FIGS
See below for how it works, or watch this video.
Match funds will be available on a first come first served basis from Tuesday 29th November 2016 at 12 noon until funds run out, or until the campaign closes at 12pm on Friday 2nd December, whichever is sooner. So do book Tuesday 29th November at 12 noon into your diary now, to have the best chance of doubling your donation to the Ibba girl students at https://secure.thebiggive.org.uk/project/FIGS.
As with last year, if you intend to give between £500 and £5,000, please would you notify us, so that we can predict how much is likely to be raised. You can do this, or ask any questions that you have, by emailing Chernise on firstname.lastname@example.org
