give and invest

You can help children attend school, books in hand. You can help a woman plant seeds for a garden to feed her family. You can help a young graduate receive a certificate of training in metal work. You can make a difference.

Child Sponsorship provides educational and developmental support for children.

Buy items that were handmade in Ethiopia, or tickets to upcoming events in our online store. Also online, find all the tools that you need to start your own fundraiser, with the help of your closest chapter.

Sustainable giving options, such as the Endowment and Investment Funds are options for more long term opportunities.

No matter how you choose to give, your contribution will make a lasting impact in the lives of families for generations.
General donations will be applied to the projects that need it the most, or go towards a specified volunteer’s expedition.

Consider a legacy or planned gift to Kids Hope Ethiopia. The benefits for Kids Hope Ethiopia and the families we support are great – there are also great tax benefits for you.

Consider making a donation to the Scholarship Fund, Endowment Fund, or Investment Fund.

Donate part of your assets: stocks, bonds, or mutual funds. Transferring securities directly to Kids Hope Ethiopia allows you to make a larger gift while eliminating capital gains tax.

Make an interest free loan to Kids Hope Ethiopia for 3-10 years. We earn interest on your loan and then return the principle to you.

Include Kids Hope Ethiopia as a beneficiary in your will, pension, RRSP or other retirement funds, for a specific sum or a portion of your estate.

If you are interested in any of these options contact us and we will put you in touch with our Certified Financial Planners.
