The Gary Moser Memorial Fund for Africa (Gary's Fund) was established in 2004 to honor Gary Moser's commitment to development work in the continent. Gary's Fund is a donor-advised fund at FJC's Collective Giving Fund which is a foundation of philanthropic funds and a 501(c)3 organization. FJC has the highest rankings for a non-profit organization including the Four Star Charity Rating from Charity Navigator and the GuideStar seal.
The Moser family visited our Ncedulunthu Project in South Africa with our partner Ikamva Labantu. We also toured the highly regarded facility in the community where our teachers receive their training.
YOUR DONATIONS AT WORK
We are proud to report that Gary's Fund is run with the lowest possible administrative costs (just under 3%).
Gary's Fund uses it's donations exclusively for our projects. The total cost of our annual newsletter, mailings and all costs incurred to run and maintain our website are paid directly by the Moser family. There is no rented office space, furniture or equipment. No one at Gary's Fund draws any compensation for their time or work.
Every penny of every dollar sent by Gary's Fund to our African projects has always gone and will continue to go as a direct "pass-through" to those projects. Not one dime may be used for overhead or administrative costs by our partners. These terms have never been negotiable.
WHO WE ARE
Gary's Fund is run by Susan Flick Moser in consultation with her family and her extensive network of dedicated friends and contacts here and overseas who have devoted their careers and lives to development work in Africa.
This undertaking is done as a labor of love to provide assistance to some of the world's most vulnerable chldren while honoring Gary's dedication, commitment and passion for development work in Africa.
We have devoted years of careful and exhaustive research to the identification of partners and projects that meet the long list of requirements and goals for Gary's Fund. We have maintained a close working relationship with our partners in each country and are deeply grateful for the work that they do.
One key requirement of Gary's Fund is that the schools must be available to all children living in the community who wish to attend, regardless of ethnicity, race or religion. The goal for all of our schools is that they grow, thrive and eventually become registered as government schools in their respective countries thus becoming eligible for critical subsidies and support.
