Imagine Scholar survives on the overwhelming generosity of others. We are fortunate to have an outside organization cover all administrative costs, so every penny you donate goes straight to the Imagine Academy and the students. Books, school uniforms, and field trips are just a few of the things your support brings to deeply appreciative kids. We also welcome your ideas, advice, experience, or collaboration and are very grateful for all manner of contributions.
Here are some of the ways your generosity helps Imagine Scholars achieve their goals.
$7 - Educational DVD rental. You could be the reason the students have a philosophical debate about the Matrix!
$15 - School supplies pack. Get the students back to school with a calculator and plenty of pens and paper.
$32 - The invaluable access to 10 used books to open up an Imagine Scholar’s mind. Recent selections in our monthly book club include Fahrenheit 451, A Wrinkle in Time, Mao’s Last Dancer, The Giver, and Siddhartha.
$39 - One month of transport for an Imagine Scholar to get to our class and back home, safe and sound.
$59 - One student’s school uniforms for an entire year. Send Imagine Scholars back to school in style… well, maybe not in style, but at least within school regulations.
$79 - Enables a rural student to go on a once in a lifetime field trip, every six months!
$109 - A new printer ink cartridge. They may not be hip, but they do print about 2,000 pages of great educational material.
$257 - Funds the end-of-year awards ceremony and celebration!
$410 - Monthly transport for 10 students. Each month we have an average of 9 classes, and each class an average of 2 1/2 hrs. Which means you singlehandedly provide 225 hours of amazing imaginative education!
$597 - A computer for a rural student, putting the entire world at their finger tips for the first time.
$790 - Enables an entire 10 person Imagine Academy class to go on an awesome field trip… and you can decide where we go! Science Center in Johannesburg? Sleepover at the observatory in Pretoria? Educational safari in Kruger National Park?
$8,958 - Give a FULL* 1-year university bursary to an amazing student going after his or her dreams! *Everything! Tuition, room, board, travel expenses, and living stipend.
