Will you partner with us?
CARIFES GIFT DAY is a new regional initiative which provides an opportunity for you to generously give towards the work that God is doing among students in the Caribbean region.
This year, CARIFES Gift Day will focus on raising funds for CARIFES Academy, which launches online in March 2024 followed by an in-person gathering in August in Trinidad and a 10-week mentorship program concluding in November. All funds raised during this time would be doubled (until 20 000US is reached) because of a fund matching opportunity!
“You must each decide in your heart how much to give. And don’t give reluctantly or in response to pressure. “For God loves a person who gives cheerfully.”” – 2 Corinthians 9:7 (NLT)
