An amazing resource for those interested in getting involved with worthy charities and projects is UniversalGiving. Learn more about why UniversalGiving is such a helpful resource for those interested in philanthropy and giving back. 

Founded by Pamela Hawley, UniversalGiving helps to provide hundreds of methods for people to get involved in the world of philanthropy through giving and volunteerism. 

UniversalGiving has taken the time and effort of vetting non-governmental organizations (NGOs) over 100 countries and created an easy to use resource that allows you to take action by focus or geographical region. Whether you are looking to aid a child suffering from poverty, help provide clean water and sanitation, or looking to help those residing in China or Uganda, UniversalGiving provides opportunities to donate gifts, fund projects, or volunteer in those areas and countries. 

UniversalGiving is a completely free service that makes sure the entirety of your donations are given directly to the charity or project of your choice; at no point does UniversalGiving take any cut of donations made through them. 

An innovative Quality Model is instituted by UniversalGiving, which involves the utmost due diligence for each project and nonprofit that they partner with and feature. Through this Quality Model - which conforms to compliance with the Patriot Act, review of management, financial vetting, verification of nonprofit status, achievements and awards, and much more - ensures that when you utilize UniversalGiving you can trust that you are associating your philanthropy in the top-performing projects around the world. 

Some of the organizations that they have partnered with and projects they are helping to fund include:

  • Develop Africa, Inc. - This charity helps to facilitate both sustained and meaningful development in Africa including a project to provide schools in Sierra Leone with computers. 
  • Nepal Youth Foundation - A non-profit organization based in the United States that works to assist those living in Nepal with medical care, housing, and education a current project focuses on assisting in the rescue of Nepalese girls from bonded servitude.
  • Miracles in Action - In order to assist Guatemalans living in extreme poverty, Miracles in Action is currently working to provide backpacks and school supplies for students in the country. 

In addition to helping you find projects and volunteer opportunities, UniversalGiving also provides assistance to corporate entities in philanthropic services through UniversalGiving Corporate. 

No More Poverty is proud to provide support to UniversalGiving, a truly amazing nonprofit.
