Donating

NIPSA’s Developing World Fund was set up in June 1993 and aims to relieve in any part of the world persons suffering from poverty, sickness or distress, to advance for the public benefit the education of the inhabitants of impoverished countries so that their conditions of life may be improved.

Projects supported by the Fund must be sustainable. Details of some of the projects supported by the Fund can be found on the map here and in the articles posted below.

The Fund is unique because 100% of all money contributed by members goes directly towards the specific self-help projects. No money goes towards administration costs.

If you would like more information about the Fund please contact your Branch Secretary or NIPSA Headquarters. We encourage members to donate regularly by either taking out a covenant or authorising a Give-As-You-Earn (GAYE) payroll deduction.

If you would like to contribute to NIPSA’s Developing World Fund please see details below. For more information about the Fund please contact Geraldine Alexander.
