Why Your Annual Partner Pledge Matters


The Annual Partners Campaign provides EAB’s most reliable source of income every year, enabling us to budget ambitiously and responsibly. The campaign cultivates a base of long-term donors whose generosity nurtures and supports the health, sustainability, and growth of Education Across Borders.

Our goal is to raise $70,000 to address the current and emerging needs of our organization. Your commitment now will help to build a sustainable and vibrant future for EAB.


EAB’s promise is to continue our heartfelt work, while increasing our ability to respond to new needs.

EAB seeks to renew its purpose by strengthening staffing levels to meet the needs of the people we support in the DR. Co-founder and Director John McLaughlin has been at the heart of this organization since its inception; his vision and deep connection to the mission with the Dominicans are critical to EAB’s vitality and growth. Yet his position has never been funded full-time. Our new Development Director, Ann Anderst, lends nearly 25 years of fundraising and event expertise to our efforts. We also need to shift her from part-time to full-time. Imagine what they can achieve with more time!

EAB believes in the possibilities. There is tremendous need in the Dominican Republic, where only 22% of children complete 8th grade, and hundreds of thousands live in substandard housing, without access to sanitation, basic education, or health care. Other communities look at EAB’s success and ask, “Can you help us too?” There is tremendous need in the U.S., where many students yearn to make a difference in the lives of others but lack access to an established, safe, and truly effective international service program. Many students look at EAB’s success and ask, “Can I be part of this too?”

The Goals of EAB’s $70,000 Annual Partners Campaign:

  • Increase staffing levels of John and Ann to full time @ $24,000
  • Strengthen and grow our current programs and resources @ $36,000
  • Expand into neighboring communities @ $10,000

EAB’s accomplishments to date are awe inspiring, and the Annual Partners Campaign will enable EAB to grow our work. EAB is ready with the knowledge, experience, and love necessary to realize the possibilities.

Together, we are transforming communities through relationship.
