our philosophy –––––––––

Ever read the Bible and wonder what to do with Christ’s call to care for the poor?

We know how it feels to be overwhelmed and confused when it comes to giving. In a world of such extreme inequality, many of us recognize that giving to charity is an important act of Christian discipleship. The question then becomes, which ones?

Today, there are over a million charities in just the US alone, but not all of them are equally helpful. Some are even downright harmful. So how can you know if a charity is trustworthy and effective? How can you know if your giving actually helps the poor?

Poverty isn’t simple.

Poverty alleviation isn’t simple.

But giving should be.

And that’s why we decided to roll up our sleeves and do some deep research for you. Our team systematically evaluated 628 openly Christian charities and selected just 24 to feature on our website.

Then, we further narrowed down the list to our top 7 picks for outstanding Christian charities alleviating global poverty.

Now you can give freely and confidently to promote the flourishing of divine image-bearers worldwide.

But don’t just take our word for it! Read on to find out why you can trust our selections.

OUR CONCEPTUAL FRAMEWORK
FOR POVERTY & FLOURISHING

The charities we recommend work in five cause areas: Health, Education, Safety, Capital and Ministry.

We believe human beings flourish when they live out the purposes for which God made them: to be healthy and well, to learn and grow, to do meaningful work, to be safe from violence and to know and love God.

Our top seven charities include one global charity within each of the five cause areas, one global charity that works in all five cause areas, and one domestic charity.
