Gem Legacy Offers Year-End Giving Opportunities

Jewelers can demonstrate to clients their commitment to colored gem supply chain sustainability

- Gem Legacy, a 501c3 nonprofit organization launched in 2018, and dedicated to supporting gem mining communities in East Africa, is offering members of the gem and jewelry industry a quantifiable and tangible avenue for making year-end charitable donations. Those who contribute will be supporting a cause that positively impacts small colored gem miners and their communities. Contributors will also be given pre-written materials to immediately announce their donations to their clients during the holiday giving season.

Year-end giving opportunities include:
* a $750 sponsorship for young adults to receive a four-month training program in gem faceting, gemology, and gem identification;
* a $550 scholarship for secondary school fees for Kenyan orphans in gem sourcing communities
* a $200 donation to adopt an in-need family in a gem sourcing community for the holidays.

Industry members who make a donation to any of these initiatives will receive a pre-written message and photo they can use for email or social media posting. The materials will reference the gem mining location and initiative that will benefit and communicate the donor’s commitment to giving back.

Gem Legacy gives 100% of donations directly to its initiatives, which are located in Kenya, Tanzania, and Malawi. All focus on entrepreneurship, education, and in-need children in gem mining locales. Other kinds of donations and fundraising ideas can be found on gemlegacy.org/partners and interested parties can create their own fundraising efforts from the templated materials.

“We are so excited to provide this opportunity to the global gem and jewelry trade: giving back to those who have given us the foundations of our businesses,” said Roger Dery, Executive Director of

Gem Legacy. “Gem Legacy is committed to exponentially expanding the positive impact of gemstones on sourcing communities and sharing a public image of how gemstones are improving lives within these often challenged areas.”
