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 70:1 in India, for example), and we’re a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, so your donation may be tax deductible in the US. Thank you for supporting our work!

Other Ways To Give

Write A Check

To support the Hands on Houses project, please make your check payable to:
The Equip Foundation, and mail it to:

The Equip Foundation
75-5660 Kopiko Street
Kailua Kona, HI 96740

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!

Donate A House

Give an entire house. It costs us around $4,800 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.

Bank Transfer

We have accounts with both Bank of America and Bank of Hawaii. Contact us for details to arrange a direct transfer.

Corporate Matching

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.

Donate Stock

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

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.


if you'd prefer to donate directly using PayPal (as opposed to via their giving fund), you can do so using this link.


If your bank uses Zelle, you can transfer a donation directly to our Bank of America accounts using either or (808) 319-3317 (our office number). Read more about Zelle
