Head Eesti sõbrad!

Dear Friends of Estonia!

Eesti rahva hüvanguks olete panustanud nii jõu kui ka nõuga 27 aastat.  Suur tänu teile hoolivuse ja usalduse eest.
Teie eelistate hariduse, tervishoiu, noorsoo tegevuse ja kultuuri toetamist. Seda Fond vahendab nii kuidas võimaldab  sissetulek ja partnerlus Eesti organisatsioonidega .
Noorte eest hoolitsevad organisatsioonid nagu Tartu Kristlik Noortekodu ja Tallinna Peeteli koguduse sotsiaalkeskus on osutunud toetajate lemmikuiks.
Pr. Hilda Kaepa, kes esindas Fondi kui ta aastate jooksul külastas Eestit, usaldas  oma testamendi kaudu Fondi haldamisele kolmveerand miljoni dollari väärtuses väärtpabereid. Nendest saadav tulu on tema soovi kohaselt suunatud Tartu Kristliku Noortekodu heaks. Pr. Maia Vanaveski suunas oma  pärandustombust  sama suure summa Fondile. Pr. Vanaveski pärandus võimaldab permanentse kodu ostu TKNile. See on väärikas kink tähistamaks Eesti Vabariigi 100. a. juubelit.
Hariduse alal tuleb esile tõsta Tartu Ülikooli rahvusvahelise õiguse professor Lauri Mälksoo algatus asutada Tartu Ülikooli Tallinna osakonda kaheaastane ingliskeelne magistriprogramm(MA in International Law and Human Rights) koos rahvusvahelise õiguse ja inimõiguste raamatukoguga.
Toetajate initsiatiiv ja aktiivne koostöö suunab tegevust Fondi algusest peale. Näiteks, Bernard Schneider, M.D., ja Endel Sepp, M.D. panid materiaalse aluse meditsiinitehnoloogia ülekande projektile, mida juhatas Ole Golubjatnikov.  
Kõik annetused on vajalikud , et kindlustada Fondi tegevust Eesti heaks. Avalikkuse toetus võimaldab Fondil tegutseda  ennast tõestanud, legaalsel alusel.
You have told us what you prefer. Your preferences have been followed.  Thank you for caring and for trusting us to follow through.
Over the past 27 years the Fund has used most of the resources to serve education, healthcare, and youth-serving projects. Cultural projects have also been supported,  as reflected by our donors’ interests
In 2016, the Fund was surprised by two very generous bequests. Mrs. Hilda Kaepa left us a portfolio worth three-quarters of a million dollars. Her wish was to direct the income from the investments to support the Tartu Christian Adolescents’ Home. A special account has been set up to honor her wish. Mrs. Maia Vanaveski designated the Fund as a beneficiary. Her bequest,  as generous as Mrs. Kaepa’s, enables the Tartu Christian Adolescents’ Home to acquire a suitable building for its permanent home.  Combined, that support is an estimable present  to Estonia on the occasion of the Republic’s 100th  anniversary.
Professor Lauri Mälksoo conducted the fifth session of the Martens Summer International Law School in Pärnu. Sixty students from abroad applied, 30 were admitted. Thanks to an expert, international faculty, the school contributes to the development of future academic and governmental leaders, especially in the republics that regained their independence and have to be  vigilant to stay free. Professor Mälksoo is also using the Fund’s support to found a two-year Master’s level  progam in international law at the Tartu University campus in Tallinn.
Please visit our website www.eafund.org and contact us via eafund@comcast.net Your ideas, support, and personal involvement  make all the difference.

2015 Highlights

We provided $142,490 in cash grants for charitable purposes in Estonia  in 2015. That amount was slightly higher  than  the sum of contributions, grants, and investment income minus direct expenses.  Yearend surprise was the bequest by Mrs. Hilda Kaepa, $191,583 in securities, to provide support to the Tartu Christian Adolescents Home.  Added to an earlier bequest by Mrs.Tiina Mäher McNally, it raised our income -producing investment portfolio to over $800,000. It helps keep our support steady.
The Elmerice and AndreasTraks scholarship fund distributed  $33,930 to ten Tartu University students. The Oleg and Maie Golubjatnikov memorial scholarship $1560 was awarded to an M.S. candidate in medical technology and biomedical physics.     Noarootsi Gümnaasium received $5500 to provide native English speaking teachers  for its top-rated English language program.
International law and Human Rights will  have its institute on the Tartu University campus inTallinn, and offer an M.A. degree. The program is being organized by Professor Lauri Mälksoo. Seed capital was provided by the Fund. 
Youth-serving organizations and various institutions received 73,000. Among them were the Tartu Christian Adolescents’ Home ($30,000), Bethel pastoral Care in Tallinn ($15,000}, Kohila Childrens’ Center ($11,000, MTÜ Granny’s Place ($15,000),  Estonian Folk Culture Center ($1000), Rapla Maarja-Magdaleena Congregation.
