Other ways to support CAMFED


Donor advised funds

Grants made through Donor Advised Funds can be designated for use wherever the need is greatest or aligned with thematic areas that match your interest, such as climate action, geographical focus or emergency response.


Stocks and shares

Donate securities directly to CAMFED to support girls through their education and beyond. Find out how to get started and crucial information to complete your gift.


Qualified Charitable Distributions/IRA gifts

Gifts from your retirement account made directly to CAMFED don’t add to your taxable income, and allow you to meet your required minimum withdrawal for the year.


Matching gifts

How we use your donation

Over 90% of every dollar we spend goes to our programs.

When you educate one girl, you educate many

Every girl you support through CAMFED will go on to help at least three others to go to school, multiplying your impact far into the future.

New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof described CAMFED as the “perpetual motion machine.”

We call it the CAMFED Multiplier Effect.
