Upstate International Founder's Fund
Looking back to Upstate International’s founding in 1998, it is certainly exciting to be in our own renovated community center with a new yard addition, diverse membership, resource filled website, and with the many incredible programs being offered. These initiatives include the Monique and Bill Glass School of International Languages, the World Affairs Council Upstate and its Global Upstate Conference on International Business and World Affairs, the International Women’s Group, Salsa at Sunset, Upstate International Month, and more.
Requests for services and classes are on the rise as our region grows through foreign investment, local entrepreneurship, and an influx of residents seeking to make our home theirs as well. Scholarship-based English classes, cross cultural communication training, and low-cost international language classes are needed now more than ever.
We have established a Founder’s Fund to underwrite our language school and services. Our goal for the fund is $25,000, for our Silver Anniversary, to cover material costs and teacher pay, scholarships, the facility, and staffing.
This 25th Anniversary is the perfect way to celebrate what has been accomplished and to support the UI Team’s critical needs as the mission moves into the next 25 years!
We hope you will join us in funding this needed and impactful resource that is the Heart of Global Engagement for Upstate SC. Contributions can be made in cash, credit card, PayPal, and by check. We are most grateful for your support.
