Help us make Camp GLOW 2017 a reality!
Each year Camp GLOW is partially funded with support from the Peace Corps Partnership Program.
Through the Peace Corps Partnership Program you can donate online (once the grant goes lives, usually a couple months before camp) where one hundred percent of your tax-deductible contribution will go directly toward the designated Peace Corps Partnership Program project.
The Partnership Program does not completely fund projects, but serves as a link to groups, foundations, service organizations, and individuals wanting to contribute to the valuable work Volunteers do with their host communities. In order to receive funding through the Partnership Program, a community must make a 25 percent contribution to the total project cost and outline success indicators for the individual projects. This helps ensure community ownership, a greater chance of long-term sustainability, and ultimately, success. In years past, a majority of GLOW’s community contribution have been provided by Plan Nicaragua in the form of human resources, while local businesses and organizations have pledged support with supplies and coverage of some transportation costs.
Additionally, you can send a check to the Peace Corps Office of Gifts and Grants Management with this form. You may also call the office at 202-692-2170 or toll free at 855.855.1961, ext. 2170 to contribute by phone. See the Peace Corps FAQ webpage for more helpful information. Do not hesitate to contact us with any questions.
Supporting GLOW with Penny Wars / Pennies for Peace competitions in your classroom, church, or office:
Another way you can support Camp GLOW efforts in the future is by hosting a Penny Wars / Pennies for Peace competition in your classroom, at your church, or in your office building. In 2014 three schools in three different states raised over $1,200 for GLOW by doing just this. Those coins sent 12 girls to Camp GLOW… who knew small change such make such a big difference?! Head to our Penny Wars Facebook Page to see the intense competitions and incredible contributions. Read more about how to organize your own Penny Wars / Pennies for Peace competition here.
