Other than making a direct donation, you can also support the Armenta project through raffle tickets and corporate sponsorship. This is the time to do it. Make your tax-deductible donation before the end of this tax year! Receipts will be mailed from EWB-USA for donations over $250.

Raffle Tickets:

1 for $10, 3 for $20. Grab a Raffle Ticket for yourself as a belated holiday present, and pass 2 on to your colleagues. Support this Engineers Without Borders project and get a chance to win cash or tickets to a Sox game. First prize is $1,000.

If you are a team member, or just interested, you are invited to also volunteer to sell tickets! Your first contact will be Sarah Ruthko. Donations for prizes are also being accepted. Raffle tickets are on sale now, and due by Jan 25th. The drawing is scheduled for January 29th after the chapter meeting.

Corporate Sponsorship:

As you know, our Corporate Goal for this Phase I Project is $50,000. Your company could provide the Armenta Project with a sediment tank ($1,000 donation), a dam ($3,000), or empower a wonderful community with the generous gift of a water tank ($30,000). A donation of $7,000 would cover the cost of local, skilled labor on site; a gift of $5,000 would provide the generator, concrete mixer, saws, and other equipment needed to develop the Armenta Water Distribution System.
