Your donations pay for expanding and maintaining the cafeteria, paying the kitchen staff, and subsidizing a hot lunch program for needy students at the Lan Cun Primary School. The cafeteria and kitchen are permanent structures that will be used by students and teachers in the school for many years to come and for many purposes outside of serving lunch.
Your donations will also pay to cover school fees (tuition, room and board, books, uniform) for promising female students ready to start high school but could not otherwise afford to continue their education. We will select the students with the help of the school and community.
All donations are tax-deductible. You can make a safe and secure transaction by clicking the "Donate Today" button, or send a check made out to "Lan Cun Education Project, Give2Asia" to:
Lan Cun Education Project

Every dollar helps. Here are some suggested donation levels:
$20 pays for one student to have an affordable hot lunch in the new cafeteria for three years.
$180 feeds the neediest kids in one class, kids who would otherwise not have anything to eat at lunchtime, for three years.
$350 covers the cost of one semester of high school for a promising female student.
We know there are a lot of great projects out there that also need your financial support, so our goal is to make the biggest, long-term impact for the kids of the Lan Cun with each dollar we raise. By building, funding, and staffing the cafeteria, we have directly and positively impacted more than 800 kids and teachers.
We are proud that Give2Asia, a well-respected, U.S. tax exempt charitable organization (ID# 94-3373670), chose to make the Project one of its Donor Advised Funds after thoroughly reviewing our plans, impact, and likelihood of success.

We at the Lan Cun Education Project are paying for any additional processing fees related to the Donor Advised Fund so that 100 percent of your donation goes to the students.
