Sustaining Members

Join Global Village Project’s monthly giving program and become a Sustaining Member - for refugee learners.

Become A Sustainer | Sustaining Member | Global Village Project

Becoming a Sustaining Member is a meaningful way to take a stand for a future in which refugee girls who have recently arrived in the U.S. have access to the education they need to pursue their dreams. Members understand that the mission GVP was built on over ten years ago is a long-term commitment to removing barriers, advancing equity, and advocating for change. Sustainers believe in making a lasting impact: they stand with our students as they work 12 months a year to overcome obstacles, and they support the progress that is made at GVP by giving 12 months a year, too.


Recurring gifts, set up like a subscription payment from your bank account (preferred) or credit card, allow GVP to further invest in the holistic support for our students year-round.

To give you an idea of the impact a monthly recurring gift can have on one girl’s year, here are some examples:

$30 / month

six weeks of summer learning

$50 / month

one year of general music and introductory instrument classes

$100 / month

a healthy lunch every school day

$250 / month

one school year with specialized guest educators & learning resources

$500 / month

holistic support for social & emotional needs and health & wellness
