UJAMAA GRANDMAS works in Calgary, Alberta, to raise funds for the Stephen Lewis Foundation Grandmothers to Grandmothers Campaign. UJAMAA GRANDMAS Founders started small but had lots of ambition and lofty goals and our contributions to the Campaign continue to grow every year and with every event. To the end of 2020, proceeds from our fundraising events and direct donations have enabled us to contribute more than $1,544,841 to the Stephen Lewis Foundation.
The following history of donations to the Foundation includes money directly from UJAMAA GRANDMAS Sales, Collections, General Events, Special Occasions, Stride and money from individual donors including Monthly Giving, Securities, In Memory/In Honour, Holiday Tributes and money from Kazuri Jewelry sales. These numbers also include donations made by the group before the name UJAMAA GRANDMAS was made official.
