The Savong Foundation became a 501(c)(3) in May 2011.
We have five board members; Phil Caldwell (CEO), Jenny Lau (Treasurer), Eddie Lamborn (Scholarship Manager), Brandi Jackson (Secretary) and Sean Heim (Music Program Director).
We have a very good relationship with Future Bright having worked with them for the past three years. The staff at Future Bright really care about the students and they give us monthly academic and attendance records so we can better assess a student’s performance and motivation. Most importantly, the students love going there to learn and at approximately $100/month for tuition and school supplies, the fees are quite reasonable for the quality of the curriculum. With such a solid high school education, the students are well prepared for their university years.
It’s very easy! Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will give you the list of students that still need support. Sponsorship's for individual students start at $50/month and can go up to $200/month for university scholarships in Phnom Penh. The students correspond with their sponsors by writing update letters every three months. No direct personal communication is allowed between sponsor and student so these letters are passed through the Savong Foundation.
We firmly believe in complete transparency. Our financial information can be found on Guidestar or if you read our annual reports, it is included there as well.
