Do you want to make an impact or does your business want to support our work? Here are nine ways you can be involved and help change a life forever.
Donate In Honor
Honoring or remembering a loved one through a donation to MPA is an especially meaningful way of paying tribute to a special person. Select from a variety of impactful gifts to change a life in Africa.
Checks can be mailed to 4949 Columbia Ave., St. Louis, MO 63139 USA. Call with a credit card donation to 1-314-776-1319.
Build to a big impact over time. Join our “Tembo Circle” – set an amount to automatically contribute each month. Like an elephant (“tembo” in Kiswahili), our monthly donors never forget to offer a hand up.
Invite friends, family, and colleagues to support your own way of fundraising for MPA (car wash? spaghetti dinner? personal 5k? birthday donations in lieu of gifts?). Contact us for ideas and steps to set up your own campaign page.
Help MPA’s mission by pitching in the nitty gritty of running events, folding newsletters, presenting at speaking engagements, or even planning fun activities for the group.
LEGACY GIFT, SHOP, & MATCH PROGRAMS
Leave A Legacy
Making a planned gift through your estate, IRA or stock account is a special way to support MPA and to leave a lasting legacy. Like the baobab tree, a legacy gift continues to give life to these projects.
Shop + Support
ONE POTATO TWO and HOLY COW are wonderful children’s stories describing the work of MPA.
Double your impact to those in need by checking with your employer if your gift is eligible to be matched. Please let us know what we can do to provide the necessary information to your employer.
WE WORK FOR PEOPLE CLIMBING OUT OF EXTREME POVERTY
MPA stands for “Microfinancing Partners in Africa.” The word “partners” is inclusive for us. We partner with you, our generous donor, to steward your gifts for maximum impact. We partner with grassroots organizations doing great microfinancing.
Through these groups, MPA partners with people living in the direst of circumstances, desperate poverty with its underlying burdens and threats to health, community, and dignity. The people who are struggling to climb out of such extreme poverty are not merely recipients of charity.
They are our heroes–they work so hard in a difficult world. They are our partners–there are no better advocates for systemic change than the people who have seen success through small income projects. How can we not be inspired?
