The Roux Foundation

is dedicated to promoting
Cross Cultural Learning and Health in the Global Community
to help ensure that all people can lead productive and healthy lives.


How You Can Help

Our goals are achieved through contributions of all sizes. We target 100% of your donation to go directly to the projects we fund in South Africa, Namibia and Mozambique locations. We are currently in the process of defining future projects in Southern Africa that will promote learning and health in accordance with the Roux Foundation's mission.  

Sponsorship and donations are entirely tax deductable as the Roux Foundation is a non-profit public benefit and charitable exempt organization under section 510 (c) (3) of the Internal Revenue code and is not organized for the private gain of any person.

 We appreciate your help and support of the Roux Foundation's charitable global work. 

Many Ways to Donate:  

  • Donate online or by Mail to the general fund, or specify a project and amount on your mailed check or money order to be used only for that project.

Current priorities are being defined in Mozambique, South Africa and Namibia.  

Corporate Matching 

You may be able to increase the impact of your personal donation if your employer matches it. Many companies will double or even triple their employee’s tax-deductible donation, or provide other cash incentives for donating. Discuss with your human resources or corporate relations department about matching donations, and let us know how we can support completing the process with you.




The Roux Foundation is completely volunteer operated. If you would like to volunteer please contact us at 1 (415) 272-0293 or email


Spread the Word


The more people who are interested in the charitable work of the Roux Foundation to promote cross cultural learning and health, the sooner we can help improve the lives of people in Southern Africa.


  • You can host a presentation for a group. We can come and share our mission and future projects.
  • Add you to our mailing list, to help spread the circle of awareness about our work.

Host a Fundraising Event


One successful event Roux Foundation has been hosting is a house party. Simply invite your family and friends to a gathering in your home, and let them know Roux Foundation members and volunteers will also be there to discuss our goals and work. As part of the fundraising event, each person who provides a donation of $15 or more will receive a copy of the new book, Courage and Croissants, Inspiring Joyful Living by Suzanne Saxe-Roux, Ed.D. and Jean P. Roux, Ph.D. These books are donated specifically to raise funds for our public benefit projects.


Sponsor a Child’s Education


There are many children in need of funding to further their education and health. These children need financial support for food, transportation, uniforms, tuition, and school supplies. Your $50 per month donation could go a long way toward meeting the educational and health needs of these children. Sponsorship is entirely tax deductible and 100% of your contribution will go directly to support a student.
