ELMA Extends Challenge Grant to June 30, 2015
Africa University has an additional six months to close a gap of $138K+ in gifts and reach its goal of $500,000 raised from African donors. The ELMA Foundation is committed to matching these gifts dollar for dollar. Launched on March 1, 2013, the goal of the ELMA Challenge Grant Appeal, “Africans for AU”, is $500,000 in gifts from qualified African donors. It was initially scheduled to end last June, but ELMA has extended the challenge period to June 30, 2015.
