All donations over $10.00 are eligible for an Official Tax Receipt.

IREAD can also accept publicly traded securities as donations.

Sponsorship is offered at the following donation level irrespective of the actual cost of the construction, which is typically higher - IREAD will pay the difference from its unrestricted funds.

Northern Pakistan: $45,000 CDN.

Uganda: $65,000 CDN

The Ugandan centres are larger than the ones in Pakistan due to the higher population of ECD-aged children in the villages.
