Life Membership

Through financial support and by inspiring others with their care and commitment, Africare Life Members are essential contributors to Africare’s mission, improving the quality of life for the people of Africa.

Individuals, families, community groups, greek organizations, embassies, educational institutions and more can become Life Members. You can also make a gift of Africare Life Membership for someone else as an honorary gesture or in memoriam.

In addition to transforming the lives of Africans in underserved communities across the continent, Life Members receive the following benefits:

  • Name inscription on the Life Members Wall at Africare House in Washington, D.C.
  • Life Membership certificate
  • Invitations to Africare events
  • Special mailings to keep you informed of our progress
