Designated vs General Donations

You have the choice of providing a general donation (undesignated) or a designate donation.  A designated donation is one that is specifically allocated to a specific purpose whereas a general donation can be used to support any of our programs as the need arises.  If you wish to designated your donation for a specific purpose, please send us an email or letter that specifies:  (a) the amount you are donating, (b) the purpose for which you want it to be allocated, as well as (c) your name & contact information.  For STEM designated donations you can use the online STEM Donation Form (click here) or you can send this information by email to kgefstem@gmail.com or by letter the mailing address below.

NOTE:  If you using PayPal and are designating your donation to purchase a specific piece of STEM Equipment, please add 2.9% plus $0.30 to your overall donation amount in PayPal, to compensate for their automatic fees.  Otherwise, we will not have sufficient funds from your donation to make the purchase you have specified.  (To avoid such problems, a check is recommended for designated donations.)
