Shares for Scholarships: 2023 Campaign Update

Our 2023 “Shares for Scholarships” campaign has come to a close, and your response was overwhelming: 60 total contributors gave a grand total of $21,516! That’s $7,104 more than was raised in 2022!

Thank you for your generous outpouring of love for the children of Pakistan. Your gifts make it possible for 47 students to benefit from a year full of learning (in 2022, we supported about 30 students). This year’s campaign raised:

  • 43 full scholarships for day students (each full scholarship = $400)
  • Gifts of partial shares by 17 people that add up to another 4.5 full scholarships

This total doesn’t include what’s being raised right now through the Mission Madness basketball fundraiser, or the 18 scholarships funded by Derry members and friends outside of the Shares program, or the 5 scholarships given by the Mission and Peace Committee. Stay tuned for an exciting final report in coming weeks!

We can’t thank you enough for your kindness. Bless you and shalom from Derry’s Friends of Sargodha committee!
