How can $50 help in 2014?

You can help Lithuania's teachers make changes in their schools through the
American Professional Partnership for Lithuanian  Education


For twenty one summers A.P.P.L.E. has offered a variety of seminars and workshops for teachers, administrators, librarians, social workers, special educators, parents, and others involved with the Lithuanian educational system. Our goal is to help our colleagues reform Lithuania’s educational infrastructure so that all citizens will have the skills they need to sustain democracy and promote freedom. The unfortunate reality is that the costs to educators of implementing some changes in their schools are still prohibitive. Your contribution will help teachers, who attend the 2012 seminars, to implement some small but significant project with their students.

Through the Lithuanian Scholars fund (Lietuvos Mokytojų Fondas, LMF) we will be offering grants to a teacher or groups of teachers, who participated in any of the summer seminars. Please consider making a tax-deductible donation of $50 or more toward such a grant. You can view the 2006-20072007-2008, 2008-2009, 2009-1010, 2010-2011, 2011-2012 and 2012-2013 grant recipients and their projects by clicking on the year links.

Lithuanian scholar awards are not the only way to help sustain democracy in Lithuania. For $100, you can provide an ink cartridge and paper so that A.P.P.L.E. can distribute lesson notes to teachers. For $200, you can provide a stipend for a translator. For $450, you can underwrite the distribution of our newsletter. For $1,000, you can send a US lecturer to Lithuania.

Please send your contribution (along with your yearly membership dues of $25.00) to the treasurer or donate on-line through PayPal:    
105 Sturbridge Lane
Chapel Hill, NC

PayPal donations are transferred electronically. Your donation will be acknowledged by a letter from the Treasurer which you can use as a receipt for tax purposes.

A.P.P.L.E. is a 501(3)c organization, which means that your gifts are tax-deductible. Our tax-exempt number is 23-2682202. Because of strict IRS regulations, we cannot accept donations intended for specific people. If you would like to support relatives or friends, please do so directly. The A.P.P.L.E. scholar grants are intended for Lithuanian educators who do not have contacts in the United States.
