Give now to “Double the Impact Scholarship Fund”

What’s better than giving an outstanding student the chance to secure a world-class university degree? Nothing-unless it’s the knowledge that your gift is being matched, and you are making it twice as easy for a student to earn a degree.

That’s exactly why the International University of Grand-Bassam has set aside $160,000  in matching funds for need-based scholarships.  Our goal is to raise $160K in the next six months for deserving and needy students. Together, we have $320K in scholarships dollars and will be able to support 80 students. 100% of your gift will go towards the scholarship fund.

70% of our potential students are in dire need of a scholarship to attend IUGB. But due to limited funds, only 5% have access to scholarships. These scholarships provide the lifeline that will secure a promising future for a new IUGB student.  This education positively benefit his or her family and eventually, the nation and the world.  If you want to make sure an under-resourced student is prepared for a 21st century knowledge economy, please click here to donate.

Donor-Advised Fund (DAF)

DAF makes it easy for donors to dedicate funds to support their favorite nonprofit organization. It also provides an operationally convenient and tax-efficient method for donors to manage their charitable giving. With a DAF, charitably inclined individuals, families, and businesses make an irrevocable gift to a public charity that sponsors a donor-advised fund program, and may take an immediate tax deduction. Donors can then recommend grants over time to IRS-qualified 501(c)(3) public charities. If you have an account with Fidelity, Schwab or BNY Mellon, donate by clicking here.

New Campus Infrastructure in Grand-Bassam

IUGB’s growth has been rapid and shows no signs of slowing. From 17 students in 2007, the University now has 809 enrolled. This growth is expected to triple in the next ten years. To address this crucial need, IUGB is seeking financing and strategic partners for state-of-the art facilities to house our students and our academic programs.
