Recently at the United Nations, world leaders made a commitment to fund the education of hundreds of millions of children, especially the most marginalized, by mobilizing billions of dollars from international development banks.

This is big!

Their commitment to creating what is called the IFFEd or International Financing Facility for Education goes a long way to fill the multi-billion dollar financing gap for education in low and lower-middle income countries.

But there is still more to be done.

The financing gap includes philanthropy — you and me — and that is where 260by26 comes in. Our goal is to mobilize everyday people to invest long-term in children’s education.

Thanks to our partner Cheerful Giving, we can do just that. You ready?!

Cheerful allows for the donation of spare change and for recurring giving. Check out our donation page and consider the options. Also, if you are in New York during the rest of the “Ber” months (October-December), please let us know. We would love to see you at our events!

From our Co-Founders Ben and Sahar. Reach out via founders@260by26.org.

P.S. 20 percent of contributions will support 260by26 operations and 80 percent will support the life-changing work of our local partners. For donors that pay U.S. taxes, contributions are tax deductible :)
