kiva1 Organizations & Foundations
Kiva is a non-profit orga­ni­za­tion with a mis­sion to con­nect peo­ple through lend­ing to alle­vi­ate poverty. Lever­ag­ing the inter­net and a world­wide net­work of micro-finance insti­tu­tions, Kiva lets indi­vid­u­als lend as lit­tle as $25 to help cre­ate oppor­tu­nity around the world. 

Kiva works with micro-finance insti­tu­tions on five con­ti­nents to pro­vide loans to peo­ple with­out access to tra­di­tional bank­ing sys­tems. One hun­dred per­cent of your loan is sent to these micro-finance insti­tu­tions, which we call Field Part­ners, who admin­is­ter the loans in the field.

logo Organizations & Foundations Since its found­ing in 1881 by vision­ary leader Clara Bar­ton, the Amer­i­can Red Cross has been the nation’s pre­mier emer­gency response orga­ni­za­tion. As part of a world­wide move­ment that offers neu­tral human­i­tar­ian care to the vic­tims of war, the Amer­i­can Red Cross dis­tin­guishes itself by also aid­ing vic­tims of dev­as­tat­ing nat­ural dis­as­ters. Over the years, the orga­ni­za­tion has expanded its ser­vices, always with the aim of pre­vent­ing and reliev­ing suffering. 

Today, in addi­tion to domes­tic dis­as­ter relief, the Amer­i­can Red Cross offers com­pas­sion­ate ser­vices in five other areas: com­mu­nity ser­vices that help the needy; sup­port and com­fort for mil­i­tary mem­bers and their fam­i­lies; the col­lec­tion, pro­cess­ing and dis­tri­b­u­tion of life­sav­ing blood and blood prod­ucts; edu­ca­tional pro­grams that pro­mote health and safety; and inter­na­tional relief and devel­op­ment programs.
