Transparent giving is here.

Our work is simple but powerful.

Villages identify solutions to their problems. They contribute cash, labor and materials, and we help fund the rest. Invest in real people, and see exactly where your money goes and how it helps.

Village X is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit. Our EIN is 47-1845825. Your donations are not only greatly appreciated, they are 100% tax deductible.

100% transparency guarantee: at least 80% of each donation goes straight to a village project committee on the ground for direct project costs (much more than the industry average). We collect 10% for operational expenses (e.g., modest salaries of our field officers). Approximately 10% goes to banks for credit card and money transfer fees.

How It Works

Donate directly to a project.

Villages around the world need help funding small-scale, community-led projects that improve quality of life. Village X vets the villages and projects, and delivers your tax-deductible donation to a village committee for direct project costs like cement and nails.

Raise money with your own campaign.

Starting a campaign is easy. In minutes you can begin raising money for a village project of your choice. Use your birthday, graduation, wedding, or special occasion to make a positive impact you can see and share.

Follow your impact over time.

Your “Impacts Feed” displays photo updates of the projects you support, sent directly from people on the ground. Enjoy the fruits of your generosity in real time, from start to finish.
