Newsletter Matters

  • Your Contact Info:   Please keep the editor informed of any changes in your contact information.

  • Your News:   Items for inclusion in future newsletters should also be sent to the above address.

  • Notification:   Before each issue I send out an email asking for news items, but do not send a corresponding mailing to snail mail readers due to the cost and time involved. However, snail mail readers are also encouraged to send in items for the newsletter at any time.

  • This online version of the newsletter omits the obituaries and directory updates.

TEAA Action

  • Projects: TEAA and several individuals are active. To view a list of projects click "Actions" (upper left) and then "Grants" (lower left). To see photos and information on specific schools that we are supporting, click "Schools" (upper left) and then a country (lower left).

  • How to Help: If you are thinking of participating, please click How to Help in the upper left corner of this website. You will find information on how to contribute to continuing and future projects.

  • You can avoid taxes on capital gains in IRA accounts by donating those funds to not-for-profits, including TEAA. We also accept transfers of other appreciated stock. The simplest way to help TEAA support schools in East Africa is by a check made out to TEAA and sent to the TEAA treasurer: Henry Hamburger, 6400 Wynkoop Blvd, Bethesda, MD, 20817-5934. TEAA is registered as a 501(c)3 organization under the US tax code. Contributions in all forms are acknowledged with a letter suitable for IRS purposes. Call Henry at 301-320-4350 with any questions.

The Search

  • British TEAs: The effort to locate more British TEAs has stalled. The website 192.com was some help in the past. If any of you know of a better way to search for people in the UK without incurring considerable cost, please let the editor know at eschmidt1@sbcglobal.net.

Grant Process

  • Proposals: Any TEAA-er can propose a grant to a school, by copying and filling out the grant application on this website.

  • Application Form: Click "Organization" and then "Grant Application." Completed forms go to the chair of the Grants Committee: Pat Gill
