This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us.
And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers and sisters.
If anyone has material possessions and sees a brother or sister in need but has no pity on them,
how can the love of God be in that person?
Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth.
1st John 3:16-18
By giving to trustworthy nonprofits, we love with actions and in truth.
We want to see 100 people sign up to give monthly.
Give $5 or more every month in three easy steps.
1. Choose an organization to support.
Our students put in hours of research determining which organizations we support. Each organization was assessed based on its integrity, accountability, transparency, effectiveness, altruism, humility, and kingdom-mindedness. We're confident that giving to the following organizations will make the world better, alleviate poverty and suffering, and advance God's Kingdom. To learn more about how we selected the following organizations, click here.
Programs: Works in Kenya to provide access to safe drinking water through their highly effective filter distribution program. They also support locally run homes for orphans and vulnerable children.
Why they’re great: Just One Africa is led by a family that is passionate, hard-working, and Jesus-loving. The small non-profit has a spirit of excellence and a willingness to learn and improve in all of its operations. It is led with cultural and operational humility, and their water filter intervention is supported by follow-up data which shows that it is reducing the incidence of waterborne diseases. $65 will provide a clean water filter for one family for a lifetime.
Programs: Built a school in Haiti for “left-behind” students that has 176 students.
Why they’re great: Still a young organization, 117 International was started by Curtis Stout who spent 9 months in Haiti after college. Curtis was in Haiti during the 2010 earthquake that devastated the country. While there, he met children who were too old for primary school and thus excluded from the educational system. The school he helped found is entirely run by a Haitian staff and is supported with resources and technical support by 117 International. They provide hope through education.
Programs: Zoe International works to fight child trafficking in Thailand by through prevention, rescue, and the provision of healing and restoration in the name of Jesus.
Why they’re great: Long term, ZOE International desires to see local believers in Thailand, Mexico, Japan, and other areas be raised up to be leaders in their community heading the fight against human trafficking. While they do have an active role in the communities they are working in, their goal for discipling local leaders shows humility and a commitment to sustainability. They also support full-time missionaries overseas who are able to address the complexities of combatting child trafficking as they stay in communities for the long haul.
Location: Multiple countries
Programs: Provides families in extreme poverty access to financial credit through savings groups and micro-finance.
Why they’re great: Hope International helps families flourish by providing those in extreme poverty access to small loans (microfinance) so that they can start their own businesses and grow their income. They also facilitate savings groups that allow those too poor to afford a savings account the opportunity to accumulate capital. Hope International “invests in the dreams of families” in poverty. Led by Harvard graduate Peter Greer, they operate with excellence and proclaim Christ, integrating discipleship and financial services for the poor.
Programs: Works to bring about sustainable change at the village level by assisting with village-led projects.
Why they’re great: Mission Hope is Christ-centered and holistic, seeking to provide for physical, economic, and spiritual needs in a process that works closely with local leaders. Their process emphasizes the agency of local community leaders. They do not rush into community development work as outsiders; rather, they patiently build relationships with local leaders to make sure that the changes enacted in the village are sustainable and holistic, making a physical, economic, and spiritual impact.
