Frequently Asked Questions
Interested in volunteering with one of our projects?
There are many ways to see the world, but few offer the incredible feeling of knowing that your travels have made a positive difference in the lives of vulnerable children and their communities. If you’re ready to pack your bags, consider a volunteer vacation with one of our trusted partners – you won’t only be making a lasting impact in the lives of children and young adults, you’ll fall in love with them!
Is my donation tax-deductible?
Yes. GO Campaign is a U.S. nonprofit 501(c)3 organization. As such, all financial and in-kind donations are tax-deductible to the fullest extent of the law.
How is GO Campaign different from other organizations helping orphans and vulnerable children?
Transparency. Efficiency. Our trusted partners. Plus we listen.
Transparency – We believe our donors have a right to know how their money is spent and we work closely with our partner organization/local heroes to follow each dollar so we can report back to you. Efficiency – With a small, efficient staff, we’re able to cut through the red tape typical of larger organizations. We’re nimble and in constant communication with our local partners so we can act quickly to time-sensitive resource needs. Our trusted partners – we closely vet each of our partners to ensure our criteria are met, and we continue working closely together throughout our granting cycle with continual monitoring, reporting and site visits. We know their capacity, we know the children being served, and we know exactly how your money is being spent. Most importantly, we listen. We never go into a community and tell them what is best for their children – we listen to the experts on the ground and work with them to address the unique needs of their community.
How can 100% of my donation go to grantmaking?
100% of general public donations fund our grantmaking to benefit local heroes. This is possible because private donors, the sale of auction items and sponsors cover our general administrative and fundraising costs. Their investment enables us to grow as an organization and thus be in a position to help more children.
Will I receive a receipt for my donation?
Yes. For all online donations, an email confirmation for your tax purposes will be sent as soon as your contribution is processed in our system. Donations of $250 or greater made by phone or direct mail will receive acknowledgement by mail or email. Acknowledgement letters are available upon request for any phone or check donation of less than $250.
How can I get matching funds from my company?
Ask your company’s Human Resource department for a matching gift form and send it to us along with your donation or a copy of your receipt.
Does GO Campaign have any religious or political affiliation?
No. Helping to secure a better future for the most vulnerable children in our world is of critical importance to all of us, and we are grateful to all of our supporters across political and religious spectrums.
