Live Zoom Gala Event - April 25th from 5-6 pm
Tumaini 2021 Save Date.png

Like most charities throughout the world, the Tumaini Fund USA will not host an in person event this year and instead will use a virtual online format for its annual fundraiser this year due to concerns regarding the COVID-19 virus.  


Our annual fundraising gala typically includes a silent auction, a live auction, a presentation by our founder Susan Wilson, and a paddle raise.  Our virtual fundraiser will include each of these items without an in person buffet dinner, and with some other differences necessitated by the move to an online format.

Here are the important details:

The Silent Auction

The silent auction will be hosted online using charity auctions today software and will start two weeks before the event (On April 11) and continue through noon on the day of the event (April 25).  To participate in the silent auction, simply click here.


Once you register, you will be notified when the silent auction starts and you will be directed to the auction page where you can view and bid on the silent auction items.

FREE Live Zoom Gala Event

Although we will not be holding an in person gala event this year, we will hold a FREE Live Online Zoom Gala event on April 25 from 5:00 pm to 6pm.  Please click here and register for the Free Live Zoom Gala.  By registering for the event you will also be able to participate in the online silent auction which will be held for two weeks prior to the gala.

Here is what to expect at the Zoom Gala event:


Live auction - we will be holding a live auction during the event with our world famous auctioneer, PJ Obrecht.  The live auction items will be listed on the charity auctions today software during the silent auction but bids will only be accepted through this online charity auction service during the live event.  Once you have registered for the Zoom Gala you will be automatically registered to participate in the live auction.


Presentation by Dr. Susan Wilson - The founder of the Tumaini Fund, Dr. Susan Wilson, will provide a visual presentation along with an update on the current status of the Tumaini's Fund's work in Tanzania.  


Fund-A-Need - Finally, we will conduct an online  paddle raise for items that are urgently needed by the widows and orphans in Tanzania, including wells, motor bikes, houses. bicycles, school supplies and mosquito nets.  Once again, we will be using the charity auctions today software to conduct the paddle raise during the event and we'll provide more instructions on how to participate during the event.   


Thank you for your support.  We look forward to seeing you at the event!
