Make a donation
FOL gladly accepts donations. Our operating expenses are covered by members’ annual dues and some fundraising activities, so any extra donations are used entirely to support projects in Lesotho. The specific projects funded change over time, depending on the requests we receive.￼
FOL supports the following types of projects:
- Tuition Assistance including Memorial Scholarships
- The Morija Museum
- Peace Corps Volunteer Projects
- Community Development Projects
- Other types of projects as new opportunities arise.
The FOL Donations Committee considers requests for funding and makes recommendations to the Board. You may specify that a donation be directed to a particular project or type of project or you can leave it to the discretion of the Donations Committee.
If you would like to make a donation simply mail your donation to Friends of Lesotho, 4110 Denfeld Ave., Kensington, MD 20895. Checks should be made out to “Friends of Lesotho”
Donations are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law, and acknowledgment for IRS purposes will automatically be made for amounts over $250, or for any amount upon request.
