Become a Titled Sponsor

The Rotary Club of Monrovia, in partnership with Empowerment Squared, invites you to be a “Titled Sponsor” of the Foundations of the Future fundraising campaign, which requires a donation of $500 USD or more.

We have set a goal of $50,000 USD for this campaign, which will help us complete the first of three buildings. The foundation of the building is currently nearing completion and with your help, the building is expected to be completed in the next 18 months.

The campaign is themed Foundations of the Future in recognition of the fact that this set of facilities will serve as a foundation to empowering Liberians to create a brighter future for their country, in partnership with international stakeholders. In recognition of your generous contribution your name will be published on the dedicated donor wall, which will be a permanent fixture in the building.
