The Sachen Fund

Sachen Foundation’s primary fundraising goal at this initial stage is to grow the principal “Sachen Fund” to one million US dollars by December 31, 2019. All donations made by December 31, 2019 will be accumulated into the “Sachen Fund.” Your donations to the Sachen Fund will be matched dollar for dollar by a charitable fund up to one million dollars.  All donor names and amounts will be published in our Annual Report (unless donors indicate otherwise). No amount is too small, and every donation counts. Here are a few examples of grants to be awarded by Sachen Foundation by the end of 2018:
