We are a 501(c)3 organization in the U.S., so donations are tax deductible. We do not take any admin fee from your donation and we work with Amity Foundation in China, who has only a 7% admin fee, so the rest of your donation is going to what you designate it for.
Donations, recurring or one time, can be made online with your credit card or checking account by clicking on the blue “donate now” button at the bottom left corner of this website. If you are able to cover the transaction fees that would mean the amount needed for your sponsored child or project would be able available to them. The direct debit from your checking account has the lowest fees, but whichever option suits you best is fine.
Or you can mail your check to:
Attn: Peggy Gurrad
PO Box 1354
Longview, WA 98632
For donations through paypal.com, the e-mail address firstname.lastname@example.org will take you to the Altrusa account, or we can send you a link for automatic monthly donations. For paypal donations please add about 3% to cover the fees. Or you can send it as a “gift” and then no fees are charged to Altrusa which would mean the full amount of your donation can be used for your child or project. Choose the option that says “I’m sending money to family or friends” then click on continue. Choose your payment option. If you use your credit or debit card please leave the box checked that says “I will pay the fee.”
