Fund Raise

The needs of the Kenyans served by the ministries of Tree of Lives are many. We assist in providing medications, education, small business training, infant formula, housing, medical and psychological care and so much more...the list is long. It can overwhelm and immobilize us.

In reality, there are things you can do to help in a very significant way. The people receiving the services provided by Tree of Lives earn an average daily wage of less than $1. Even a small donation goes quite far in this third-world country.

How about organizing a fundraiser, like the children at St. Patrick Catholic School in Norfolk, Virginia, did recently?

To get started, you must register your event and receive approval from Tree of Lives before using the Tree of Lives logo and name in your promotional materials.

“I was feeling guilty and sorry that we had such a wonderful school and wonderful life. I know that the money we raise will go to help some of the students at the Joy Village go to another school, one that is sort of like their version of Saint Patrick. Now I don’t feel guilty. I feel excited to help!” Caroline Burton, 3rd grade student fundraiser at St. Patrick Catholic School in Norfolk, Virginia
