to Contribute to Quaqua
We greatly appreciate your interest. Contributing to the Quaqua Society will be well worth your investment.
We encourage you to thoroughly inform yourself about the Society before contributing by thoroughly examining the Society website. The "Disclosures and Disclaimers" page and the Society's By-Laws are particularly instructive.
The Quaqua Society is committed to maximizing the percentage of each donation that goes directly to the scholarship payments. Volunteers are utilized to minimize labor costs. Overhead expenditure is confined to postal, stationary, computer, award ceremony, and other essential expenses. In order to maximize cooperation and minimize costs, award ceremonies and process are conducted with the cooperation of other home-education organizations, conventions, and publications. Some funds will be used to underwrite other fund-raising costs, such as mailing or advertising, and necessary professional services.
The Quaqua Society will not deliberately share information gathered for processing donations or volunteers to any outside entities, except where express written consent is given in advance or where disclosure is unavoidably and properly compelled by a court order.
Commercial entities, organizations, and individuals making a substantial contribution (usually $300 or more) that is duly accepted by the Society shall, in general but NOT as a guaranteed legal or contractual right, have the option of having their identity noted for no less than twelve (12) months on a Quaqua site page thanking sponsors of home education and home-educated graduates.
