There are great tax advantages to making a gift of securities in kind. CRA tax changes have made it possible for you to give stocks, bonds, shares or mutual funds and to pay no tax on the capital gain. It costs you less to donate more. Contact us at 604-730-9900 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org We will be pleased to arrange a confidential meeting, and provide you with information, or guidance through the process of making a gift.
Put Power of Education Africa Foundation in your will. You can give a specified dollar amount, investments, RRSP's or RRIF’s. Your planned gift enables us to bring hope to the lives of impoverished African girls through an empowering education.
Make a Monthly Gift:
You can give monthly through CanadaHelps, or by post-dated cheque. As a monthly donor, you may change your donation amount, pause your gift, or cancel your gift at any time. To arrange a monthly donation contact us at 604-730-9900 or by email at email@example.com
Donate Aeroplan Miles:
Your donations of Aeroplan Miles will help us by allowing our volunteers to travel to Kenya. Once on the ground we work to support in day to day operations, registration of girls, photography and documentation.
The foundation does not pay the travel expenses of volunteers travelling to Kenya. All travel expenses to and from Kenya are paid only through donations made expressly for the purpose of travel.
Here’s what your tax-deductible donation can do:
Sponsorship to Secondary School
Giving $85 to $100 per month, or $1000 to $1200 per year, will enable a girl to attend Secondary Boarding School. Costs vary according to the student’s academic year, as well as the calibre, programs and facilities of the school. With your gift, we will place a girl in the best possible district, provincial, or national school and pay for her room and board, tuition fees, school supplies and some personal necessities.

We hope that you will commit to sponsoring a student for the 4 years of her secondary education. We know that unforeseeable circumstances can change a sponsor’s ability to fulfill their commitment. If this happens, we will do our best to find another sponsor for the student.
If you cannot afford a full sponsorship, consider getting a group of up to 4 friends, co-workers, or family members together, each giving a little to sponsor a girl. Make the donation that you can afford and we will put it toward a child’s education.
We try to match one sponsor to one student. You will receive photographs and letters from your student, as well as updates from the foundation. If you wish to correspond with your student, we will receive your letters and be sure that your student receives them.
Sponsorship to College, Polytechnic School, or University
Sponsors may support a girl beyond Secondary school, so that she can learn a trade, vocation or profession. Costs vary between $500 and $1500 per year depending on the level of institution and programs.
Sponsorship to Day School
A gift of $600 a year will allow a girl to attend Secondary Day School. This option is especially valuable for students in a more stable home environment, that live in close proximity to a day school. The foundation also supports our day scholars by installing solar lamps in their homes so that they may study in the evening.
