Make it an Educational Fundraising Bead Party
We believe that any action you take on behalf of others is a big step in creating a just and sustainable world. That’s why we provide the opportunity to host an Educational Fundraising Bead Party.
Help us support our programs in Uganda, and we’ll donate 20% of the funds you raise to a non-profit organization, such as your school or a local charity. All we ask is that you educate others about extreme poverty.
Here’s how to participate
Use BeadforLife’s educational tools to plan your Educational Fundraising event. The BeadforLife Curriculum for Youth is perfect for youth groups, service learning projects or scout troops. Spotlight Bead Parties include a toolbox of resources that make it easy for social and professional organizations to educate themselves and others about extreme poverty.
Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to get your Educational Fundraising Promo Code. You will need to have this on hand when you register your Bead Party.
Register online, and be sure check the Educational Fundraising box on the registration form. Don’t forget to enter your Promo Code--this is an important step! It's how we know you want to make it a fundraiser.
Complete and send us a completed IRS Form W-9 (taxpayer Identification) to confirm non-profit status for the organization you are choosing to support. Once we receive your returned Bead Party box and all of the funds you raised, a donation check will be written directly to the organization you designate when you registered your Bead Party.

Got your Form W-9?
Be sure we have recevied an IRS Form W-9 for your designated charity by the time you complete your Bead Party. We cannot issue a donation check without it. Get one here.
In the Take Action section of the BeadforLife Curriculum for Youth, students learn how they can help eradicate poverty locally and globally. Hosting a BeadforLife Educational Fundraising Bead Party allows students to share what they’ve learned about poverty and raise money for school or community projects.
Support Your Philanthropy
From sororities and professional women’s groups to workplace-supported charities, an Educational Fundraising Bead Party event is a great way to engage your community to empower women and girls in Uganda. We’ve designed Spotlight Bead Parties especially to support these events.
