Kubaho means “to live” or “long life” in Kinyarwanda, the national language of Rwanda. By joining the Kubaho Circle, you connect to a vital and active community of advocates and history-makers committed to bright, healthy futures for Rwandan families. We invite you to help us dream big and join the Kubaho Circle today.
The Circle is a dedicated community of sustaining donors at any level who champion our commitment to innovative health care for local communities. Our Rwandan-led team understands the uniqueness of our culture and language, and at the same time knows support from our global friends is critical to our vision of high quality health care in Rwanda.
Your monthly donation helps us plan ahead to create lasting, high impact solutions. Knowing we can count on your recurring gift enables us to pivot quickly as our team comes across unexpected needs in the field.
The Circle is a passionate, united group of advocates and a dedicated part of the Health Builders family. As a member, you’ll receive special access to virtual insider sessions with team members working in the field and an opportunity to connect with like-minded supporters from around the world.
We won’t spend money on unnecessary t-shirts or coffee mugs, but we will put your gift to use where you intend it: directly impacting health care in Rwanda. Monthly giving means our staff spends less time on fundraising and administration and more on mitigating disease and improving access to care.
As a Kubaho Circle partner, we know that you have a strong vision and commitment to the work we do in Rwanda so we offer a variety of ways to stay connected.
We know that our members want their donations to go directly towards the mission of the organization and helping to improve health care for Rwandans so we won’t be sending you t-shirts or mugs with our logo. We will, however, invite you to join us twice a year for an update session and interactive Q&A with staff. We hope to provide some true “behind the scenes” info and stories to bring to life the impact your gift is having and to share the challenges we are working through at the time.
You are welcome to choose whatever option works best for you. Most people will choose to set up pre-authorized payments from their checking account or credit card through our secure third-party payment site. And while monthly payments may be the most common choice to smooth out donations, you can also choose an annual commitment if that’s your preference.
We would be very happy to work with you to figure out the most convenient way to do this. If you’d like to share a “pledge” for a regular annual commitment, we can email you a reminder each year and can easily supply you with the info you need to initiate a donation from your Donor Advised Fund. Just contact us and we will follow up to work through the details.
Health Builders is a 501C3 registered charitable organization in the U.S. and will supply a receipt that can be used as you prepare your U.S. income taxes. Monthly donors receive one official tax receipt in February for the total amount of your donations for the previous year. If you have misplaced your tax receipt or have any inquiries about this, please contact us.
Yes. We prepare an annual report and post it on our website each year. We also post a copy of our most recent audited financial statements here.
We understand that priorities and financial means might change over time. You can change the amount or cancel your recurring donation at any point you’d like by contacting us.
