Give/Partner

Although we are the ones on the ground here in Davao, this ministry is a huge partnership, and none of this is possible without the generosity of others! We are grateful for the financial and prayer support of others, which allows us to continue to serve others. We are currently partnered with The Cause, an organization which allows donors to give to our ministry, and receive a tax deductible receipt. If you would like to help, tax deductible monetary donations can be mailed to:

The Cause
P.O. Box 914
Carlsbad, CA 92018

Or:

EPIC Center
65338 Bend Redmond Highway
Bend, OR 97701

IMPORTANT! In order to be eligible for a tax deduction, please note on your donation that it is for HOPE CREATED, NOT us personally. You can also give easily online, by going to www.thecause.org.

Below we have listed a (somewhat daunting) list of current ministry needs, if you would like to give towards something specific and tangible. No donation is too small! Many life threatening injuries and illnesses are treatable with a $1.00 box of band aids and a tube of antibiotic ointment.

Please note! If you would like to send stuff from the United States, we have some very cost-effective options, and people Stateside who collect items to send together in one large shipment. Please contact us if that is something you are interested in doing, and we will get you in touch with them. Also, we do have a list of small, personal items that we can always use if you are interested in helping out in that area as well, it’s amazing what a few fun goodies from home do to lift morale!
