Our supporters are amazing. We’re not a large organization, and we don’t receive any government or large corporate funding. But we’re able to make a difference through the generosity of many extraordinary people. We also work in areas where a dollar can stretch a lot further (around 50:1 in India, for example), and we’re a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, so your donation is tax deductible in the US. Thank you for supporting our work!
To support the Hands on Houses project, please make your check payable to: The Equip Foundation, and mail it to our trusty bookkeeper, Annie at:
The Equip Foundation C/O Annie Gaudette, 3777 Fujiyama Way Redding, CA 96001
Please make a note of your check number and date. We characteristically send tax receipts for your total donations to Hands on Houses at the end of each year. If you require one before that date, just let us know!
Give an entire house. It costs us around $4,500 to provide a house for a widow or family in India. You can donate now via PayPal below, or let us know if this is something you'd like to team up with others to accomplish - either in the name of your group, or perhaps in memory of someone else.
We have accounts with both Bank of America and Bank of Hawaii. Contact us for details to arrange a direct transfer.
Does your company match employee donations (either financial or time)? If so, we have a bunch of information on our foundation page here that might be helpful to your Gift Matching Department so you and they can double the impact of your support to Hands on Houses.
You or your broker can transfer stock directly to our brokerage account with TD Ameritrade. Get started by requesting our account info below.
(You may be able to deduct the value of the stock as a charitable contribution. But check with your CPA, please. We're house builders, not tax professionals!)
Donor Advised Funds (for example Fidelity Charitable) might prefer to send funds directly to our registered office, and may need us to provide additional information or verification. Much of what they need can be found on our foundation page here. Please let us know if you need us to verify or provide any info your DAF might require.
Start your shopping at smile.amazon.com and search for "Equip Foundation" to use as your charity. (We're the one in Hawaii, not Georgia.) You pay the same - we get a small percentage of everything you purchase.
If you're selling on eBay, you can pledge a percentage of the proceeds of anything you sell. Click on the button below to find out how.
As a nonprofit, we already pay reduced fees with PayPal on every donation you make. But if you give to us via the PayPal Giving Fund, we pay no fees at all. Search for "The Equip Foundation" in Hawaii to use as your charity.
Note - The PayPal Giving Fund is a registered nonprofit. You'll receive a tax receipt directly from them for your donation - and 100% of your donation will come straight to us and the work we do.
