The Immersion Fund Donation
The Immersion Fund is a 501(c)3 organization that was created to help participants fund their Spanish immersion program. Dollars donated to the Immersion Fund scholarship students who otherwise couldn’t afford an immersion trip. Students must demonstrate a commitment to serving their local community as well as a financial need to receive a scholarship…
All donations are tax deductible. Donations over $25 will receive a thank you gift of House of Hope jewelry. If your shipping address is different from your billing address, please include it in the Order Notes section at checkout.
We are helping individuals fund their Spanish immersion trips so that they can use Spanish more effectively and have a bigger impact in their home communities.
Learning Spanish gives individuals a stronger platform to charitably and professionally give their time and services to limited-resource Spanish speakers in their home community and abroad. By supporting these immersion participants, you are making a difference not only in that person’s life, but also in the lives of everyone he/she will be able to serve in the future.
Why are we collecting donations? Spanish immersion travel is costly and not always feasible for students and emerging professionals. The Immersion Fund provides scholarships through generous donations form people like you. It also provides unique fundraising opportunities for all immersion participants through our Purchase with a Purpose campaign. Participants are given the opportunity to fundraise for their own trips while also making a difference in another person’s life.
We’ve partnered with the House of Hope in Managua, Nicaragua, a center for women who are escaping the sex trade industry. These women make beautiful jewelry which our students help sell as they fundraise for their trips. When you donate to the Immersion Fund, we will send you a sample of this beautiful House of Hope jewelry as a thank you gift. You can learn more about the Immersion Fund and the House of Hope on our Immersion Fund page.
