The Ambassador Programs

The Ambassador Program was established to assist the African University Foundation in raising funds to achieve its mission. The program provides opportunities for all volunteers who are motivated to help realize African University in Tali, Cameroon through fundraising. Thus, ambassadors play critically important roles in advancing the work of African University Foundation. The Ambassador Program includes individuals who are appointed for a renewable one-year period and who assist the Board of Trustees and professional staff in furthering the mission and fundraising goals of African University Foundation. Depending on vacancy, effective ambassadors may be invited to join African University Foundation Board of Trustees.

Ambassadors form a circle of individuals dedicated to raising funds for their specific African University Foundation program or project. They are motivated by their interest in advancing African University Foundation’s mission and focus their efforts towards raising funds to achieve that end using fundraising vehicles of their choice. While an ambassador may choose to host a special event such as a house party another one may elect to organize or participate in a community event such as a walk, run or soccer tournament.

There are many opportunities for an ambassador to design a fundraising event. African University Foundation professional staff will review your fundraising plan and help advise you to ensure success. Contact the African University Foundation to discuss this opportunity. Once your fundraising initiative is approved, you can proceed with your event.

We are looking for individuals who are committed and passionate about finding new ways of addressing African development in general and education in particular. Please reflect on the Ambassador role before completing the following application.
