Give & Receive!

Here’s how you Give & Receive – a secure and simple process:

  1. Choose a school, if you’d like, and note it in the comment section
  2. Make a secure donation by credit card, PayPal, or check (offline payment)
  3. Option to make donation anonymous

Now the fun part! We send every donor a second email with a link to a poem or personal essay written by one of our students, plus a photo. Throughout the year, we also post updates on our projects, along with Thank You notes from the kids.

While we cannot guarantee that everyone will be inspired by every essay or poem, we can guarantee that every work is written by a child from the schools we support — exploring his or her voice, taking the opportunity to say, This is me! Lift the Lid is more than an exercise in creativity; it is a place for children who feel left behind by our world to be heard.

You will receive a confirmation receipt for your donation via email from Lift the Lid. (Emails are kept strictly private and not shared with any lists.) 100% of donations go directly to our sponsored schools. Lift the Lid has a representative at each school to oversee the transfer and spending of donations, to take photos, and to document the school’s progress.
