25 years of building a stronger, more inclusive Upstate
Celebrate 25 years of Upstate International by supporting our “25 for 25” fundraising campaign! As we mark this milestone anniversary, we’re excited to launch a new initiative to establish a Founder’s Fund with a goal of raising $25,000 to support our Language School and language services.
The COVID-19 pandemic strongly impacted our organization, resulting in a loss of in-person event income for almost two years. However, we continue to see an increasing demand for our language services and classes, especially for low-cost or scholarship-based English and other international language classes.
That’s why we need your support to continue providing these essential services to our community. Your contribution to the Founder’s Fund will cover material costs, teacher pay, scholarships, and staffing for our Language School and language services.
As the founders of Upstate International, Monique Glass and G. Donald Gibbins said, “We have given Greenville a wonderful international organization full of talent and opportunities. We believe this 25th Anniversary is the perfect opportunity to celebrate what has been accomplished and to support the UI Team! We hope you will join us in funding this important and impactful initiative for a Thriving Global Upstate.”
You can make a contribution to the “$25,000 for 25 years” campaign by donating via credit card or PayPal on the but, or by sending a check to our address. Upstate International is a 501 (C) 3 organization, and contributions are tax-deductible as allowed by law.
Give the gift of language and support a globally diverse Upstate. Join us in celebrating 25 years of Upstate International and help us continue to provide language services and classes to our community.
