Nyumburu Cultural Center

March 6, 2024

Nyumburu Cultural Center Supporters and Friends,

In October 2024, Nyumburu Cultural Center will be celebrating 53 years of existence. We are asking that you support our 24-hour fundraising effort for Giving Day on March 6, 2024. We would like to challenge all of our supporters to contribute $53 or a multiple of $53: i.e., $106, $159, $212, $265, $318, $371, $424, $477, or $530. We would like to have a couple of supporters and friends contribute $5,300 to the Nyumburu Cultural Center Scholarship Fund. Proceeds from the Scholarship Fund will allow Nyumburu Cultural Center to directly assist students with last-dollar scholarships; as well as help to defray the cost of study abroad and/or other educational experiences important to help UMD students matriculate and graduate. Of course, we will accept any amount with a minimum of $10 or more. We ask that you visit Giving Day on March 6, 2024. Select the Nyumburu Cultural Center Scholarship Fund and make your donation.
