How to help: Supporting Feed The World

We are grateful to receive donations from a variety of sources, including individuals, foundations and corporations.

As a 501(c)3 Non-profit, we rely primarily on individual/family-level support. Through your generous contributions, we can make a real and tangible difference for the families participating in our programs. We hope you’ll use this section of the web site to learn more about the various ways you can help make a lasting impact through the simple act of giving.

Cash. A gift of cash is fully tax-deductible for up to fifty percent of the donor’s adjusted gross income for the year in which the gift was made. Current use gifts enable Feed the world to address projects that are critical, but have a limited timeframe, while endowment gifts enable Feed the World to make a difference not only today, but to also continue to better the lives in the community for years to come.

Corporate Gifts.  There are many ways that corporations can get involved. We appreciate the significant and continued support of the community through both outright donations and in-kind gifts.

Planned Giving.  Planned Gifts are those gifts designed to offer significant tax advantages to you and your estate. These gifts may also provide life income for you, your family members or friends. With the advice and direction of your professional advisors and our staff, you can establish the type of gift that provides the greatest benefit to you, your family and our organization.

Varieties of Planned Giving:

Gifts of Stock, Securities and Mutual Funds.  A gift of appreciated stock, securities or mutual funds that have been held for more than one year are often the most economical way to give. Donors can claim the full fair-market value of the gift as a tax deduction and avoid capital gain tax on the appreciation of the asset. Our staff can discuss with you which giving opportunity best complements your personal financial planning.

Other Assets. Other appreciable assets can be donated with similar advantages as those mentioned above. These include an outright gift of real estate, such as land or a house, or other tangible personal property such as jewelry or artwork.

What will your donation be used for ?

When you donate to Feed The World, you are able to see a real impact for each dollar committed to the mission.

Giving Priorities & Opportunities

There are numerous ways to help families around the world by giving through Feedtheworld. Some gifts, like mobile devices and camera equipment, benefit all projects. Or you can contribute to individual projects such as chicken farms or well technologies. See a detailed list of opportunities here.


Projects in Ecuador are in need of things such as a large 4×4 vehicle, research on water/tree mounds and a community tractor.


Some of the opportunities to give in Peru include sweet potato starter plants, funding a unique television series and funds to purchase land.


Kenyan Projects are in need of a laptop for administrators, a projector for teaching lessons and feed storage facilities among other things.

For more information on these giving opportunities, please contact your Feed The World staff at

Contributor names, as well as Memorial and Honor Gifts, are also displayed in our Annual Donor Report (to be published and distributed in the 1st quarter of each year).
