Who We Are
What We Do
Friends of SQPA
We’ve done the hard work of finding and verifying those in need, which means you can focus on how to help. Donate to one cause or all five—it’s your choice.
The mere fact that a corporation is organized under a not-for-profit corporation law does NOT mean that contributions to it are necessarily tax deductible. For donations to be “tax deductible” the organization must file an “Application for Recognition of Exemption” with the Internal Revenue Service and be approved pursuant to Internal Revenue Code.
Totally! There are many opportunities for groups of all sizes.
It varies between organizations; however, youth ages 13-14 can find a number of volunteer opportunities that they can pursue by themselves. Generally, if you are younger than 13, you will require a parent, or guardian, to volunteer with you.
We make no profit and many of our admin staff volunteer hours of their own time so we can keep our costs low, passing this saving on to you.
Your donation will directly support eye care for patients living in extreme poverty in developing countries. 80 % of all blindness is preventable or curable, and your generosity will provide preventive and sight-restoring eye care to patients in Africa, Asia, and Latin America who would otherwise remain or become blind because they are unable to access or afford quality eye care.
Yes, on our donations web page, you can schedule a monthly or yearly gift to Grist. In fact, we encourage it!
Your security is important to us, and we take every measure to ensure your information is protected. RAINN’s donation process complies with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard. The process is fully encrypted using industry best practices to ensure your personal and credit card information is kept private and secure.
