Help PAMBE Ghana match funds from the Paul Milburn Gift Fund at the Oklahoma City Community Foundation

This year, PAMBE Ghana has received a grant of $30,000 from the Paul Milburn Gift Fund at the Oklahoma City Community Foundation. The grant will provide funding to continue teacher training, new curriculum learning materials, education support for La’Angum Learning Center graduates and a teacher dormitory project. The grant will also support an enhanced internet connection, training in digital literacy and computer equipment used by both students and teachers.

To receive the funds, PAMBE Ghana must match the amount with individual donations. Please consider a donation to help us obtain these generous funds and promote literacy at the La’Angum Learning Center in rural northern Ghana.

Thank you for your continued support - Update from Alice Iddi-Gubbels

A New Tax Deduction for You!

Yes, you can get a new tax deduction for making a contribution to a charity.  You can make a contribution up $300 and still write it off - without itemizing deductions.  You can still take your standard deduction AND get a $300 deduction under the CARES ACT for COVID relief.

Even better, if you are 70.5 or older, you can make a contribution directly out of your IRA for any amount (up to $100,000) without paying any taxes on it. 

Yes, you can do both! You could donate $1,000 from your IRA (70.5 and older) and $300 (no age limits) from your checking account and get the tax savings from both.

 


Did you know?

PAMBE Ghana’s teachers presently earn less than those who serve at Ghanaian Education Service (“GES”) schools and La’Angum Learning Center risks losing Montessori trained teachers to the GES. Thanks to the generosity of the Liddell Foundation and Mother Huggers, PAMBE Ghana will begin to implement its long-time plan of responsibly raising teacher salaries. Please join Mother Huggers by making a tax deductible donation to support increased teacher compensation.
