McMaster Orphan Sponsorship Program

McMaster Orphan Sponsorship Program

About This Campaign

The McMaster MSA is partnering with various other student groups to spearhead the Orphan Sponsorship Program 2017. We are fundraising to sponsor orphans from around the world this year through a campus wide campaign!

The charity we are working with is SOS Children's Villages, a non-religious and non-political charity that has a stellar international reputation. Additionally, it has schools, orphanages, programs in nearly every country in the world which ensures that this Campaign will be a truly global initiative.  It costs $432 to sponsor a child for one year and $300 to sponsor a village. Each participant can select the location of where their contribution is directed.

Two competitions will be held through Giveffect:
1. Which faculty can raise the most money.
2. Which student club can raise the most money.

We invite you to be part of this great campus-wide initiative!
