Frequently Asked Questions

How Will My Gift Be Used?

Your gift goes directly to the people and communities you want to help. We use small amounts of private funding to develop and test new innovations that are often replicated in other regions where we work. We rely on gifts from people like you to support our most creative work.

We understand that there are many great and urgent causes competing for your gifts. We hope you'll consider the following when making your giving decisions:

  • We support a highly professional staff with many years of expertise in the field. Of our 465 staff, 375 are host-country nationals.
  • Our programs are rooted in research and developed based on community priorities.
  • All of our work is conducted in partnerships to make sure our activities reach the greatest number of people and have the greatest potential to continue over time.
  • We are a learning organization and carefully track and measure our progress to learn what is effective.
  • We bring a strong history of sound financial management.

How Will My Gift Make A Difference?

Private gifts make a difference at a range of levels. Smaller gifts may be used to develop vital training or teaching materials—that are often replicated in other programs and regions. Larger gifts may be used to launch or expand new or successful initiatives.

Is My Gift Tax-Deductible?

100% of your contribution is tax-deductible. We always provide a receipt for your gift soon after we receive it.
