An AWC Scholarship sponsorship covers most educational expenses for one year, enabling a student to further her education. The fees for books, uniforms, supplies, meals and transportation are all the responsibility of the student’s family. These extra expenses are a real burden. The girls and their families need and appreciate your donation.

1)  Donate cash in person at Casual Connections on Monday mornings (10-11:30am). Location: The Living Room in the Sheraton Grande Sukhumvit, BTS Asoke. Click here for a printable Sponsorship Application and bring the completed application with your payment.

2) Donate by making a domestic bank transfer (bank fee may apply) or an international wire transfer (bank fee may apply). Here are the details of AWC's bank account:

Account Name: American Women's Club of Thailand
Bank Name: Bank of Ayudhya PCL (BAY)(Krungsri)
Account Number: 116-1-33939-1
Account Type: Savings
Account Branch: Sukhumvit 35
After making the bank or wire transfer, you need to email a copy of the deposit slip for our records to treas@awcthailand.org. Our bank statement does not show the name of the person making the deposit, and we want to make sure we credit you properly. Questions? Email treas@awcthailand.org

3) Donate via EDF America. NEW! Our partner in administering scholarships to young women, The Education for Development Foundation Thailand (EDF), has a new location in Seattle, WA, USA ~ EDF America. They have graciously agreed to work with us so that our donors can use their website to submit payment. It's simple and easy to use, and as a non-profit organization, EDF America provides a tax-deductible receipt for US taxpayers. Click to make your donation now. 

4) Donate via PayPal. Complete the form below, then click on the "Sponsor" button to process your payment.
Because PayPal does not allow organizations in our region (APAC) to accept "donations", it will be described as a "subscription." Please be aware: paying via PayPal will set up as an auto renew subscription for the next year unless you cancel it in PayPal. Instructions will be emailed to you from PayPal on how to do that.

NOTE: All AWC PayPal transactions process in Thai Baht. Any non-Thai baht transaction will be converted by PayPal. The final converted amount will be approximately US $200 / student. PayPal will display the exact amount when you confirm the payment. Once we receive notification of your payment, we will send a confirmation / thank you email.

6) Donate by personal check. NOTE: New Thai bank anti-money laundering laws now require a copy of the person’s passport in order to cash the check.
