Dollar for dollar, our giving does more.
We give where charity is truly needed.
We give in ways that help local economies, not hurt them.
We believe that the Bible commands all Christians to give sacrificially, joyously, and often. We believe when we love as Christ loves, we will give as Christ gave.
We are entirely student-and-volunteer-led. 0% of your donation will stay within Simple Charity.
We are committed to transparency in our operations and finances. No secrets. Just charity.
We are high school and college students who believe it’s not right for so many of us to live with extra while others don’t have enough to live.
We do what we do because we were called to by Jesus. We want to build His Kingdom in every nation.
By Brice Karickhoff, a senior from the University of Georgia studying global health and economics. What I Learned from Watching an Old Man Cry A college kid like myself can learn a lot from the things that make an old man cry. It’s easy for some of us as twenty-somethings to think we have it all[…]
This will be the first school year that Simple Charity operates as a 501(c)3 nonprofit, and let me just say, I’m pumped about it. As the summer winds to a close, our volunteer staff is busy laying the groundwork for a great year. I have a to-do list a thousand pages long and many moving[…]
Father, Give us faith to believe your Word. Give us faith to believe your promises. Give us faith to move the mountains. You alone can do these things. We are weak but you are strong. May the glory of your grace be shown to the nations through us. Help our unbelief. In Jesus’ name, Amen[…]
2 Corinthians 9:7 “Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.” A few weeks ago, I came to a realization: I’ve spent way too much time recently feeling sorry for myself. While there are most definitely difficult seasons in life (Ecclesiastes[…]
A couple of weeks ago, I re-read Proverbs 31 and the portrayal of a strong, capable businesswoman popped off the page like never before. Here’s the text: “She considers a field and buys it; with the fruit of her hands she plants a vineyard. She dresses herself with strength and makes her arms strong. She[…]
Ecclesiastes is probably one of my most favorite books of the Bible. Aside from the fact that the wisest person to ever live (besides Jesus) wrote it, I find such comfort in its dense twelve chapters. No matter where I find myself in life, praising on the mountain top or mourning in the valley, I[…]
During our last theme, Vitality, Simple Charity raised $10,730 to give people life. Literally. Because of your donations, 57 mosquito nets will go to protect 102 people in Togo from malaria, 686 mosquito nets will go to protect 1,235 people in Papua New Guinea from malaria, and 146 water filters will go to give families[…]
There’s a certain feeling most of us get when we are asked for charity but just don’t want to give. It’s something between pity and guilt. It’s what makes us say “No, I’m sorry,” and start walking faster when a homeless man asks for change. We know we should give, but we don’t want[…]
or at least, these people seem to think so. Old Testament Moses taught that the needs of the poor should be met among the people of God, whatever those needs may be: “If among you, one of your brothers should become poor, in any of your towns within your land that the Lord your God[…]
“Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.” James 1:27, NIV When considering the issue of how much a Christian ought to give, I am always confronted by this question: How can[…]
