Why Should I Donate?

We are a 501(c)3 non-profit charitable organization. We are an all volunteer team, which means no one is paid for this essential work and all your donations go towards our mission. Additionally, any donations are tax-deductible for the current tax year, making this the perfect time to donate!


How Can I Donate?

There are multiple ways, but the easiest is through our no-fee Zeffy portal. This portal helps us keep money that would otherwise be lost to fees. You can find our other options using these buttons.

When Can I Donate?

You can give at any time! It does help to give by the end of the fiscal year if you intend to use your donation for tax deductions!

How Do I Know This is Legit? 

Fair question! We have been working in Loudoun for over 20 years and certified with the State Corporation Commission as an official incorporated entity in 2021 (EIN 84-4791490). We also achieved our non-profit status in 2021 and remain in good standing. We work with a number of major corporations (Google, Brown-Forman, Amazon...), through a number of charitable programs (Charity Navigator, Network for Good, Benevity...), we maintain an excellent reputation (Non-Profit Insurance Alliance, Loudoun Cares, Guide Star....), and work to support major organizations in our area (LAWS Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Services, Mobile Hope, Loudoun County Government, Child Advocacy Center, Stop Child Abuse Network...). So, we've really done our homework and thank you for doing the same!
