Invest for Success Scholarship Campaign Surpasses 2015 Goal

Thanks to our generous supporters: corporate, individual and the IUGB Alumni and Friends network (AFNET), we are proud to announce that IUGB Foundation has received over $129,000.00 in pledges and donations exceeding its 2015 goal of $50,000!  We are humbled and inspired by your commitment to help deserving students obtain a quality education at IUGB.

As we strive to reach our total campaign goal of $200,000 by the end of December 2016, we will share more information and stories about our newest students (and some from those who have already graduated); how some of our supporters will be interacting with IUGB students; perspectives from some of our Cornerstone Founders on their decision to give to Invest for Success, the impact our graduates and IUGB are having in Côte d'Ivoire and elsewhere and more.  STAY TUNED!!
