Matching Gift Challenge

The Paul and Ann Milburn Foundation has provided incentive matching grants to PAMBE Ghana from 2009 through 2014. These grants provided matching funds for new donor contributions of up to $10,000, and even more in some years. Each year, PAMBE Ghana has been fortunate to secure enough new donations to realize the full value of these additional, incentive funds.
