Project HOPE

We’re dedicated to placing power in the hands of local health care workers to save lives across the globe. As the world’s population rises, a growing shortage of health care workers threatens to undermine incredible gains in global health. We’re building a different world: a strong and resilient global community of health care workers who practice innovative solutions in their communities — and then pass them on to others.

The Campaign Against Hunger

Every day, The Campaign Against Hunger (TCAH) helps thousands of vulnerable New Yorkers by giving them the food and resources they need to survive. Since 1998 TCAH has been using a community approach to caring and feeding hungry people in Bed-Stuy and neighboring communities. We offer a continuum of wrap-around services and programs that meet the unique needs of each individual with the goal of setting them free from reliance on New York’s social service safety net.

charity: water

Charity: Water is a non profit organization bringing clean and safe drinking water to people in developing countries.  The organization inspires giving and empowers others to fundraise  for sustainable water solutions.  We use local partners on the ground to build and implement the projects. Then, we prove every single project funded, using GPS coordinates, photos and stories from the field.

One (1) for the World

With the help of GiveWell, we recommend highly-effective charities that combat the causes and symptoms of extreme poverty. If we give collectively and effectively, we can reduce needless suffering and eradicate problems like malaria and child malnutrition. We motivate people to donate 1% or more of their income to the world’s most cost-effective charities, every month, for life. We update this portfolio every year, so your donations are always as impactful as possible.
