WATER PURIFIERS FOR GULU UGANDA
HELP WITH CLEAN WATER IN GULU
On June 10th, 2018 our team had the opportunity to commemorate Ugandan Martyr's Day at St. Genevieve Catholic church in Panorama City, CA.While there we had the opportunity to meet District Chairperson( the equivalent of a US Governor) Mr. Martin Mapenduzi.
Mr. Mapenduzi explained the blight of his people in Uganda and since I disclosed my work with the City of Los Angeles and other affiliations, he asked if I could assist him in bringing clean water and solar powered lighting to his region.
Overall, we are looking to raise $2.1 Million, however for the initial Go Fund Me outlay, we are requesting only$10,180. This will cover the cost as follows:
Nonprofit set up- $500
Marketing(Sending out mailers, Native Ads, Facebook Ads, etc..)-$5,500
Travel to Uganda, miscellaneous( $4,680)
Since Go Fund Me takes 2% we set our budget to account for this fee.
We have an experienced fundraiser who will assist in raising the capital outlay-$2.1 Million for the water purifiers and solar lighting.
Our goal here is to get the foundation set up property and start the initial marketing so that we can raise the money expeditiously, additionally we felt that starting to raise money now without the benefit of the nonprofit being set up correctly would cause many issues with the IRS down the road and also attempting to raise money without the property entity in place looks tacky and unprofessional. We want everything to be done right, and in its proper place, so that we have no problems raising money for the citizens of Gulu.
We ultimately plan to launch this project and start fundraising efforts by November 1st 2018. Whatever you have whether its $5, $10 ,etc. We are grateful for it! And if you absolutely cannot give, please pray for our success
