New school year and new fundraising campaign

New school year

Dear friends,

At last our long summer has ended and Step Up has begun its ordinary - interesting and busy - life. Over the long years of the Centre's work it has become a pleasant tradition to celebrate the opening of the academic year, to meet our graduates, teachers, guests and friends and mark the day in a friendly atmosphere.

This year's opening ceremony took place on September, 17. As always we congratulated our graduates on the new step in their life they are about to embark on - they were all admitted to colleges, and one of them was admitted to university. Many young people continue studying at Step Up even after their graduation, taking individual classes. Our teachers are always eager to help.

About a year ago we started a fundraising campaign at the GlobalGiving network! Over this year we received about $10,000 of your donations! Thank you to each and every one of you for making this to happen.

Your donations comprised about 25% of all personal donations collected by Step Up during the year.

Today we are starting a new initiative! This campaign is very specific. We ESPECIALLY WELCOME RECURRING DONATIONS starting from $10.

$10 will provide 1 hour of classes for 5 students.

$160 covers all tuition costs for 1 student for 1 month.

A generous anonymous donor has agreed to match 100% of new monthly donations from December 1, 2012 through December 31, 2012. New recurring donations created on will be matched 1-to-1 up to $100 per donor per project.

You can make you donations by choosing "Monthly Recurring" option at our progect page:

Full terms and conditions of this campaign can be found at:


I attached an annual report for the 2011-2012 schooling year and our September newsletter for your kind attention.


Thank you very much for all your support.
