Give Us Wings hosts several events throughout the year. The events are opportunities for you to learn about the people of Kenya and Uganda with whom we work and how through our partnership they are improving their educational opportunities, their access to health care and building sustainable future for themselves. We host various fundraising events throughout the year both formal and informal.
Get creative and launch your own fundraising event. You can change lives simply by raising money from friends and family. If you are considering training for a personal challenge, you can make your efforts even more impactful by ask family and friends to sponsor your next marathon, 10K road race, bike trek, or a Rim to Rim hike through the Grand Canyon. Or, when your next birthday rolls around, ask your family and friends to give donations to Give Us Wings in lieu of gifts to you.
We love our volunteers. People who volunteer their time and talents are invaluable to Give Us Wings and integral to the success of our organization. You can help set up and manage various aspects of a fundraising event. We have many opportunities for those people interested in longer term volunteer opportunities, such as coming into the office weekly to help with office administration, donor communication, grant writing, graphic design and many other activities. There is always something going on at Give Us Wings, and we need you, your skills and energy!
