2017 TGC Team Fundraising Project


The 2017 Giving Circle Summer Team’s Fundraising Projects!

A VERY generous anonymous donor has funded and dedicated in the 2017 teams name: The Giving Circle Africa’s Kagoma Gate School & Medical Clinic Compound Security Fence.  Once completed, a plaque dedicated to the team of 2017 will be mounted to the gate’s main entrance, during a naming ceremony, forever remembering the Giving Circle team of 2017.

Each year, beginning in 2017, The Giving Circle’s annual summer trip team will work together to raise the funds to help with important projects for that year.  The team will work on and be involved in these projects on that summer trip.

Below is a list of projects and activities we would like the team to help with.   This would be your project, and the money raised will be used specifically for these projects and activities during the trip.

Reach out to your friends, family, school, clubs etc. for help.  Donations can be made online or by check made out to The Giving Circle  and indicate “2017 trip project” in the memo. Please mail the check to: The Giving Circle , PO Box 3162,  Saratoga Springs,  N.Y    12866.

Please Note: This is not mandatory but we do ask everyone does their best to help
