The 2017 Quilt for Africa fundraising campaign generated raffle ticket sales totaling $1700. All these proceeds plus additional funds from donations and corporate matching were given to four non-profits that provide vital humanitarian services in Africa: Tariro Hope, Ancient Ways, Portland-Mutare Sister City Association (PMSCA), and UNICEF. To learn more about these wonderful non-profits, visit our Who Benefits? page.

As I write this, we are half-way through the 2018 Quilt for Africa fundraising campaign and it is exciting to report that we have already eclipsed the number of raffle tickets sold during our 2017 campaign. We are on our way to an exceptional campaign result. We learned quite a bit during our first two campaigns that has allowed us to work smarter this year.

New Initiatives for 2018

  • To increase raffle ticket sales, we expand our raffle to include new items. Read the full story in our blog post New Raffle Items Added for 2018.
