UWCEA Endowment Fund

Socioeconomic diversity lies at the heart of UWC East Africa, a principle made achievable through the provision of full or partial scholarships to over 60% of the student population each year. This commitment shows our dedication to creating an inclusive community, ensuring that a diverse group of students can access and benefit from a transformative education at UWC East Africa. However, sustaining this financial model poses a challenge that we need help addressing.

UWC East Africa has been given an exciting opportunity to have a US$ 3 million endowment which will be used to fund scholarships for ever more. 
At 4% growth, this fund will give interest of US$ 120,000 per annum.
However, the opportunity will pass us by if we haven’t raised a target of US$ 2,000,000 by 30 December 2025.
This will be matched by long-term UWC supporters and philanthropists through the UWC Endowment Fund to create a US$ 3 million endowment for UWC East Africa!

The US$ 3m fund will secure the school for generations to come as it will allow the school to fully fund 4 East African students a year, 2 in D1 and 2 in D2, in perpetuity. 

To unlock the matched funding, the money raised has to come from the school community: alumni (student and staff), parents (current and former), and staff (current and former). Sometimes people are put off by the idea of raising millions, but, if we break it down, a million can be raised by:

  • 100 people giving $10,000, or $500 a month for 20 months
  • 1,000 people giving $1,000, or $50 a month for 20 months
  • 2,000 people giving $500, or $25 a month for 20 months

So, the School has embarked on a sustained fundraising drive – to raise US$ 2,000,000 by 31st December 2025. Already, some teachers and parents have asked that a proportion of their salary or school fee payments be diverted to the fund.
We think we can do this but we really need EVERYONE on board. You may pledge talent and fundraise with us. Every contribution and effort will get us closer to that target which will guarantee greater financial security for ever more!
