About

Rukundo International will be hosting our Fourth Annual Dinner, Wine Tasting and Silent Auction in Gaithersburg, MD on May 20th, 2017. We need volunteers to acquire items for our silent auction.

There are 2 ways to help: from your home, or on-site. For the in-home work, we need individuals willing to call and email local businesses to request silent auction donations (all materials and guidance will be provided, including sample emails, along with ongoing support).

For on-site work, we need individuals to enter local businesses and request donations, utilizing a form, which we will provide to you. This is a really great opportunity for students to help our cause. Most businesses are happy to help because often donations are tax deductible.

100% of the funds raised from any items acquired will go towards the construction of RI Primary School in Uganda opening in 2017, which will focus on providing free education, nutrition, and healthcare to orphans.

Rukundo International is a 501(c)3 registered nonprofit, dedicated to providing educational opportunities, healthcare and nutrition, community-based support, and hope to orphans and other underprivileged and at-risk children and their extended families in Kabale, Uganda. We are 100% volunteer-run in the U.S., so close to 100% of our funds go directly to our programs.
