Money


In spite of all the donated goods and services we receive, there are still hard costs that require money to purchase.


  • Any money donated goes directly to the need you specify.
  • There are no overhead or operating costs. 


Areas you can donate money include:


Materials and supplies

  • Fabric, thread, and notions
  • Quilt Batting
  • Yarn,
  • Beads,
  • Packing supplies,
  • Mileage reimbursement


Food:

  • Because of the urgent need for food supplies, we are organizing bulk purchases and capitalizing on sales events.
  • This requires cash to purchase the food when it is available.


Education:

  • Many of these displaced refugees from the FLDS Communities have never attended public schools or graduated with any degrees.
  • The Launfal Foundation has set up a scholarship at Mojave Community College in Colorado City, Arizona, to pay for tuition and fees for refugees to attend the required classes and pass the GED test.
  • Any money donated goes directly to the College who will apply every dollar donated to the GED tuition and fees.
  • There is no overhead or other costs.
  • This will allow people to earn the basic GED Certificate they need to obtain decent jobs and support their families. 
  • As the need arises, these scholarship funds will also be used for Technical Training, Mechanical Training, as well as Higher Education.
  • This will increase the capacity of the refugees to care for their families and eventually give back to the communities and help others like themselves.

Donations are the life blood of the Launfal Foundations. Here we have no paid staff and no government funding; everyone is a volunteer. That is right, of the hundreds and hundreds of people who produce goods, transport them, or deliver the goods every week, no one is paid for their efforts.


The Launfal Foundation has only a small budget from donated money and boutique sales that pays the hard costs of fabric, yarn, beads, packing supplies, and mileage reimbursement, (when a volunteer turns in the receipt.) Everything else, time, money, and supplies, is donated.


Anyone who is willing can donate in any of the 3 areas below:

Goods


Donated goods can be personal donations or organization drives. We can use any of the following items:


Clothing for men, women, and children

  • Shirts and blouses, long sleeve preferred
  • Pants
  • Shoes
  • Underwear
  • Coats and Jackets
  • All clothes should be clean and serviceable.



Toys and educational supplies:

  • Books for all ages, especially children
  • Non-electronic games
  • Toys for boys and girls
  • Dolls



All donation should be delivered to the Center on Wednesday mornings before 11:00 am to allow time for processing and delivery.

12 pallets of goods and a futon bed ready for shipping.
