Getting to the Basics

Every child deserves to go to school with a backpack.

Every mother deserves to have the items they need to take care of themselves and their baby.

Every student deserves to receive a quality education in a safe & secure school building.
We're taking some of the financial burden off of low income families by providing their children with backpacks, school supplies, shoes, and clothes.
We're ensuring that new mothers get a proper head start by providing them with basic essentials for themselves and their baby.
We're making sure that school buildings are a safe and conducive learning environments for students and teachers by helping them to rebuild, renovate, and repair.

A Brief History

Grace to Give Foundation was founded on March 2, 2019 and was officially incorporated as a nonprofit organization in January of 2020. This organization was birthed by four Nigerian-American women who shared the same desire--to be a blessing to others.

We kicked off our very first project in 2019 by providing a public primary school of 800 students in Nigeria with brand new backpacks and school supplies and have never looked back since! And we're  just getting started...

A Letter from the Founders

We are so honored to have been given the opportunity to serve such amazing communities. Although our work in Africa and the United States differ from each other, the goal remains the same--to be a blessing by easing the burdens of hard working people.

We want people to feel the love of God through us and know that they are seen and loved. Although we are not a religious organization we undoubtedly recognize that there are two things no human being can live without: love and help. We all need love, and from time to time, we can all benefit from the help of others.

Thank you to everyone who has supported our mission in any way. You are appreciated more than words can describe.

Sincerely,
Seun, Olumide, Yemi, and Kemi ❤
