Donating from the USA

Please note that because 'Africa 95 - The Caine Prize' is a UK charity, it won't come up on the main "list" of eligible charities in the main CAF database. The CAF America website mentions a $500 fee, but this is not charged when donating to Africa 95.

Many thanks, we appreciate your support.
