Give the Needy Foundation is an independently registered nonprofit charity committed to help the families of single mothers in developing countries and to bring about a meaningful change in their lives. Our charitable activities are motivated by caring for single mothers who are raising their children alone. We also help some local charities/shelters in Southern California.
Give the Needy has the vision that every single mother raising her children alone deserves the right to a dignified way of life. By improving the quality of life of a single mother (widowed, divorced or abandoned), we are helping families to have hope for a better future.
Give the Needy Mission
Our mission is to help underprivileged families and make a lasting impact on their lives. We endeavor to provide long and short term care in the area of self-sufficiency and sustenance for single mothers with their children to raise their families.
We at Give the Needy believe that people in need should not be looked down upon by their race, color or religion. They have the same value system for living/life as anyone else, but they are deprived from the opportunity to provide for themselves. They are just human beings like you and me trying to survive in this world. The everyday things we take for granted are a luxury for these unfortunate people who wake up each morning afraid of whether they will have enough food to live through the next day or a roof over their heads to sleep with some security and dignity.
The activities of Give the Needy are run by an independent Board of Directors and volunteers, who meet regularly and serve without reward or compensation. Their personal opinions and interests are in line with the vision and commitment as mentioned above. We support families that achieve effective results from donations entrusted to our care. This is achieved while ensuring costs are kept as low as possible for effective operations under clear financial supervision. We also employ review systems for proper checks and balances to further ensure that we are getting the best value for your trusted donations. There can be no greater inner satisfaction than to help someone less fortunate. Nothing compares to a pure and selfless sense of purpose than helping others. Together we can help build better families and communities. One family at a time.
Our non-profit is dedicated to use your contribution as efficiently as possible. It is our goal to spend no more than 10% of your donation on the overhead costs associated in running the charity and to spend 90% of your contribution to support people in need. We are listed with GuideStar as a “Gold Star”, which is their highest level of transparency, for nonprofit reporting.
Our pledge to our donors is to continue to keep our overhead costs low, to maximize the percentage of your contributions that go towards the families in need and to donate your support wisely so that several families and their children in need may benefit from our help. If you need any information about our financials; we will gladly give you all the information required, as we have complete financial transparency.
