Ten Friends Project is dedicated to using donor money efficiently. Rand and Mark are usually at the site when money is spent whether it’s for the sewing and delivery of a stretcher, the installation of a water filter, or the construction of a bathroom. We raise the money locally and we deliver it, hands-on, to our projects.
Our administrative expenses are minimal. We have fundraising expenses, bookkeeping/tax preparation expense and Mark LaMont receives a salary of $175 per month for his work.
In preparation for our next trip to Nepal, we have made fundraising goals. We hope you will contribute, in any amount, to these goals. Your donations to Ten Friends are tax-deductible (EIN# 30-0284653).
What can your support purchase?
Your donation, large or small, can be used to help meet critical needs in Nepal. Here is a brief list of some of the needs and their costs.
|Mattress and Bedding||$40|
|Bunk Bed for Orphanage||$150|
|Student Sponsorship for One Year||$264|
|HEC Teacher Training Sponsorship for One Year||$1000|
There are, of course, many, many more needs not listed above. Your donation of any size is greatly appreciated and will be put to good use. Thank you!
