Our Mission

The Ijebu Association of USA, Inc. is a recognized non-profit, non-political, cultural organization under Section 501(c) (3) of the United States Internal Revenue Code.  As such, contributions to the Association are generally deductible as charitable donations for the United States income tax purposes.  We create cordial relationships among all people, regardless of their race, gender, sexual orientation or national origin, and develop good citizenry in the communities of our domicile.   
 
In the past, we have embarked on a variety of community projects, mostly in Nigeria, to improve the living conditions of the local communities through provision of medical supplies to hospitals and clinics, books and stationeries to public schools, improvements of public school facilities, and award of academic scholarships to needy students.  In recent times, our focus has concentrated more on education and health.  To borrow from the United Negro College Fund, “A mind is a terrible thing to waste.”  Also, as the old saying goes: “Health is Wealth.”  Hence, our future goal is to provide educational facilities more conducive to learning, award more academic scholarships to financially challenged students, and ship medical supplies to local communities (in Nigeria) who currently lack adequate medical care, to stem the untimely deaths of people from preventable and treatable diseases.   
 
Skyrocketing costs, hard economic times, lack of access to adequate medical care, coupled with reduction in both public and private sector scholarship programs in Nigeria, are the other reasons we rely so heavily on your generous support. 
 
Your generous support is the foundation for the hopes and dreams of all our scholarship recipients and the impoverished communities who currently lack adequate medical care and educational facilities in Nigeria.  Their future contribution to humanity will make you proud you helped.  Your generosity makes it possible for Ijebu Association of USA Inc. students, regardless of their financial situation, to seize the opportunity to attend college.  It also helps us to improve the health condition and intellectual development of thousands of impoverished Nigerians, who would otherwise die from preventable or treatable diseases, or study in environments not conducive to learning.   
 
While the need is so pressing and the rewards of immediate action so satisfying, we urge you to make your tax-deductible contribution to Ijebu Association as soon as you can.
