Our Philosphy

Mona Foundation exists because we want to build a better world for our children. We believe that the most powerful way to alleviate global poverty is through universal education and gender equity. Our goal is to educate everyone, with a focus on increasing opportunities for women and girls, so that each individual can become an agent of change in the social and economic development of their own communities.


According to the 2008 UN Development Report, "investment in girls' education my well be the highest return investment in the developing world." We also know that development is a long-term endeavor. We partner with grassroots educational organizations that have proven records of success and support them as they expand and evolve to meet the needs of their communities.


Mona Foundation sends 100% of all Designated Funds, and 97% of contributions given to the General Fund, to the projects it supports after a 3% bank processing fee for online contributions. We are able to do this because most of our administrative costs are covered by a Private Operations Fund set up by our "Patron" sponsors outside the donations the Foundation receives.
