Membership fees and money donations
Membership fees are an important part of our fund raising. For this we need many members and consequently we work continously at soliciting new members.. Föreningen försöker också få Many members are also monthly donators and the backbone of our ecomomy providing good predictability. With only 10€ per month you can change the lives of many children.
Invisible gifts are gifts not seen by the giver nor the recepient. By paying certain amounts the giver is donating certain items or services to the needing children in Tanzania. We do receive rather good money from people wishing to honour their friends, who have everything, this way.
Events and local visibility
SchoolKids Light is participating in all major local events creating visibility and PR. Additionally we benefit financially by having lotteries, providing grilled food and selling invisible gifts.
During the latest few years we have also had a SchoolKids Light wall calender for sale as well as some genuine Tanzanian jewelry and gifts.
During 2019 we arranged for the first time a charity dinner. Success was reasonable from a fund raising perspective and good from a visibility perspective.
As it is well known that we travel to Tanzania every year it happens that school classes or local organizations support us by collecting necessities for education or health for us to take in our baggage to Tanzania. Naturally we are glad to do so.
Very important are the donations of winnings for lotteries. The gain from lotteries are a significant part of our income thanks to the very good reputation our lotteries have.
