Warm Thanksgiving Wishes to You!

From the CCEdFund family & scholarship recipients, we wish you the happiest of holidays and year-end festivities! We are tremendously thankful for your support these last six years and we look forward to continuing to change lives through scholarships. CCEdFund has been able to provide scholarships to ambitious but impoverished and/or orphaned Cambodian students because of your ongoing financial support.

As our previous scholarship recipients continue to attend our partner schools, we have exciting news: we are considering a new nominating partner organization in a rural area outside of Siem Reap. This school provides full scholarships to children through twelfth grade and they would like to nominate some of their graduating students for CCEdFund scholarships to universities. We look forward to sharing more details about this new opportunity to provide educational access for impoverished students!

In this season, we wanted to share with you that we will be participating in #GivingTuesday - a global day of giving to give back after a day of giving thanks and getting deals.

Please join us this #GIVINGTUESDAY - December 3rd! If you give on that day, your gift will go much further than usual!

Two reasons:
1) MATCHING FUNDS: CCEdFund is part of Microsoft's YouthSpark program, and so 100% (!!) of your donation will be matched on #GivingTuesday!
2) GIFTS FOR YOU! You can opt to receive a GIFT as a thank you for your donation through our Gifts for Good promotion.

We look forward to sharing more updates from Cambodia in two weeks about our students when another round of site visits has been completed but in the meantime, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your help to provide life-changing scholarships for our students.
