世界名人网讯 海外中国教育基金会(OCEF)在2009年美国慈善募捐挑战赛(America's Giving Challenge)中一路领先,并最终夺得了总冠军,赢得5万美元大奖。

  2009年10月7日到11月6日,causes.com网络慈善募捐社区依托Facebook平台,与美国Case Foundation、PARADE杂志等合作,在网上举办2009年美国慈善募捐挑战赛America's Giving Challenge,吸引了世界各地的慈善机构和爱心人士的积极参与。此次为期一月的捐款竞赛分别设立每日奖金和总奖金,奖励当日获捐次数和全月获捐总次数的优胜者。

  OCEF自10月17日参赛以来,依靠义工和往年捐款者的力量,并充分利用网络社区,海外华人论坛和媒体,为中国贫困农村的孩子们募得了156,637美元捐款,先后多次获得每日捐款数的第一名,取得1万7千美元日奖金,并最终在7,875个参赛慈善组织中脱颖而出,夺得了总冠军,获得5万美元大奖。OCEF的成功募捐活动在Facebook和美国媒体引发了广泛的关注,并且极大地充实了义工队伍,赢得了更多的支持者,为OCEF今后的发展壮大创造了有利条件。在此,OCEF对所有帮助和支持OCEF和贫困孩子的朋友们表示由衷的感谢。OCEF将带着所有捐款人的期望,继续OCEF的助学事业,把最需要帮助的孩子们送进课堂,实现他们的读书梦。

  海外中国教育基金会 (Overseas China Education Foundation) 的前身为中国教育救援基金会 (SOS China Education Fund),由一群海外学子于1992年10月在美国加利福尼亚州正式注册为非盈利组织。2001年4月在德克萨斯州重新注册,并更名为海外中国教育基金会。2003年经美国联邦税务局认定符合501(c)(3)条款,捐款人向海外中国教育基金会捐款可享受免税(联邦税号76-0680540)。OCEF是一个主要由华裔及华人组成的,非宗教性、非政治性的民间慈善团体,在世界各地(特别是北美及中国大陆)都有众多义工。OCEF的唯一宗旨是帮助国内贫困地区的孩子接受教育。OCEF至今资助了两万六千多人次(每学期每生计为一人次)的贫困中小学生,以及2000多人次贫困优秀高中生上学。仅去年一年,OCEF就资助了5977名贫困中小学生,1089名贫困优秀高中生,196名贫困教师,并资助兴建了4所学校校舍和26个农村学校图书室。OCEF完全由义工管理和运作,去年的营运费用仅为捐款总额的4%。更多情况请见:http://www.ocef.org。

OCEF WINS $67,000 AWARD IN 2009 AMERICA'S GIVING CHALLENGE

Houston, November 25, 2009--- The Overseas China Education Foundation (OCEF) has won a $67,000 award from the 2009 America's Giving Challenge. Entering the competition late, OCEF still finished in the first place among 7875 participating charity organizations. According to the official announcement made by the event organizers on November 24, 2009, OCEF has successfully raised $156,637 from 13,772 donations in the 30-day, national online fund-raising competition organized by the Case Foundation, Causes and PARADE Publications. 

"I am deeply touched by the care and generosity of thousands of OCEF donors, and by the compassion and tremendous hard work of OCEF volunteers. This Prize is truly shared by all who support the core principle of OCEF: every child, no matter how impoverished and underprivileged, should have access to basic education. We are also grateful to the organizers of this event for providing OCEF an excellent platform to reach out to new supporters and reignite the passion of existing donors," said Professor Gan Liang, president of OCEF.

OCEF is an independent, US -based non-profit organization dedicated to supporting the education of disadvantaged children in impoverished areas of China. OCEF is run entirely by volunteers, primarily in North America and China, who carry out all functions including fund-raising, student application reviews, field inspections, fund distribution, and book donations.

OCEF was originally founded in 1992 in California with the name of SOS China Education Fund. Since its inception, OCEF has funded more than 26,000 Grade 1-9 students and more than 2,000 high school students. In addition, OCEF has developed special programs to build school buildings, set up libraries, and provide financial aid to teachers in the most underdeveloped areas of China.

About America's Giving Challenge

The 2009 America's Giving Challenge, which took place from October 7 - November 6, generated more than 105,000 donations that helped to raise $2.1 million for nonprofit organizations. Causes initially competed to win cash awards totaling $170,000, funded by the Case Foundation, based on the number of donations to their cause, not dollars raised. On October 30, the presenting partners announced an additional $75,000 grant for awards from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation. Causes hosted the Challenge through its application on Facebook and PARADE Publications helped to launch the Challenge with a cover story about the importance of giving by actor Matt Damon. More information on America's Giving Challenge, including a full list of winners, can be found at www.americasgivingchallenge.com.
