Fundraising Events

We’re going the extra mile!

Join Lift the Lid as we race, hike, swim, bike, whatever challenge we can find to raise money for special projects at the schools we support.

100% of the money we raise for each project is put to use, which is why we don’t use fundraising pages sponsored by companies that charge a fee on each donation.

All projects contribute to the growth, sustainability, and productivity of our sponsored schools. Following the completion of each project, we will share photos, testimony, and Thank You notes from the students and teachers.

Please work with us to make life-altering improvements in schools that educate hundreds of underprivileged students!
