Request a Donation from Calendar Proceeds

Each year we raise many thousands of dollars from sales of our International Calendar. We use the proceeds to fund educational and self-help development projects around the world (e.g., Community Garden Program in Madison, Tillers International project in Tanzania, schoolroom construction in Vietnam). The Calendar Committee sets aside funds to cover costs for the next year’s calendar and then determines how much will be available for donations to worthy projects.
