A word about donating

Hey all,

Take these things into consideration when making a donation to help me teach and study in Uganda. I have two sets of payments to make: payments to Invisible Children for program fees and a payment to New York University for my tuition. A donation to Invisible Children is tax deductible and a donation to NYU is not. I am suggesting donors divide their contributions in half, therefore payments will be made to both categories and you receive a tax deduction.

Also, the First Giving page is the easiest, most convenient way to help; however, they charge a fee of 7.5% to your donation for expenses.

I thought this information would be helpful.

Chao.

OTHER DONATION OPTIONS!

You can also donate directly through the Invisible Children Website at:

https://secure.invisiblechildren.com/donate

  • Choose the link One Time Donation
  • Fill in the form. At the end of the form it says additional information.  Check I would like to make this donation on behalf of someone else.
  • A drop down screen will appear asking for the first and last name of the person you are making the donation on behalf of. In the first name box, put Runita and in the last name box put Jones-T/Ex. You must write the last name this way otherwise the donation will not benefit my trip, but it will go the the main organization.
  • It will prompt you to e-mail me to inform me that you made a donation on my behalf.  My e-mail address is: rlj239@nyu.edu. Please do this also, I must mail in the names of people who donated through the invisible children website.

Payment by check:

  • Make check payable to me if a tax credit is not important to you or to Invisible
    Children, Inc. if you want to receive a tax deduction. On the Memo line put Runita Jones-T/Ex.
  • Mail to:

              Ms. Runita Jones

              P.O. Box 622328

That’s it!  Invisible Children, the northern Ugandan people and I all thank you immensely for your support.

Sincerely,

Runita Jones
