INVEST FOR SUCCESS HITS HALFWAY MARK
ADD YOUR CONTRIBUTION TODAY!

 


Here at the IUGB Foundation, year-end momentum is building as we approach the holidays. A little over a month ago, we announced our Invest for Success Scholarship Campaign. Since that time, we are happy to report a very positive response from our Côte d'Ivoire, U.S. and worldwide supporters. We have passed the halfway mark to our year-end goal of $50,000.00 with over $27,000 in donations! We're pleased that in addition to contributions already on hand, new pledges are coming in from individuals and corporations. Read more...




AMBASSADOR DEAR REFLECTS ON FIRST VISIT TO IUGB CAMPUS
 
I am a frequent traveler to Cote d'Ivoire since 1971, and as U.S. Executive Director of the African Development Bank, lived in Abidjan from 1994-2000. Serving on the Board of IUGB Foundation provides me an opportunity to support continued development in my adopted second home. Our recent fundraising trip to Abidjan coincided with IUGB's semi-annual board meeting on Thursday, November 26, Thanksgiving Day. Although Ambassador Hicks, the IUGB Foundation Executive Director, and I missed the traditional holiday at home, we truly experienced a week of thanksgiving in Abidjan. We saw in person the remarkable growth of IUGB and how contributions to the IUGB Foundation are making a real difference in the lives of students in West Africa. Read more...
