GlobalGiving is a nonprofit that supports other nonprofits around the world by connecting them to donors and companies, tools and training.

VUSA has applied to become a GlobalGiving partner and has reached the final round of the intense vetting process – an accelerator fundraising campaign which runs from the 13 – 30 September.

To graduate from the Accelerator and become a permanent GlobalGiving partner, VUSA must raise at least $5,000 from 40 unique donors during the campaign.

Amongst other benefits, once accepted as a GlobalGiving partner, donors in the USA and UK will be able to claim tax benefits when donating to VUSA.

Crowdfunding platforms unleash the potential for anyone, anywhere, at any time, to make the world a better place. Whether you can give financially or not, we are asking the Bishops community to please share the link and champion this cause over the next few weeks. Whilst the end goal is to become a GlobalGiving partner, the project VUSA is raising funds for is unbelievable – we’ll give you a hint – it involves a bus and 40 laptops –– please look out for the campaign launch on social media and newsletters next week and share to anyone who you think can support this wonderful initiative which supports VUSA’s goals of awakening opportunities for primary school children in the Langa Community.

VUSA rugby teams will be playing Bishops on Saturday. We are looking forward to what promises to be a wonderful morning.
