Donate Where Needed Most
Donate to the General Fund
The general fund is critical to the ongoing financial needs of Living Hope International. These undesignated funds give LHI the flexibility to quickly respond to daily needs both planned and unplanned in the care of the children and the furthering of our mission.
General Ministry Donation
Our ministry relies on gifts to the General Ministry Fund to cover the operating costs of Living Hope International and Esperanza Viva Youth Homes. While our sponsorship program provides for a portion of the children’s immediate needs, those funds are not used for administrative and operating costs. General fund gifts are necessary for the daily expenses of our work with the children, and we rely on these donations to keep the ministry functioning well.
Giving with Confidence
Living Hope International understands the importance of privacy, security, and integrity as it relates to your financial partnership. LHI has been recognized as a trusted financial steward for more than 20 years.
With no shortage of need in the world, we know you seek to sow into fertile soil that will yield fruit for tomorrow and eternity. Your gifts to Living Hope International are something we receive with a deep sense of accountability and stewardship.
We value your partnership in the Great Commission— loving and serving “the least of these.”
Living Hope International has recently been recognized by a number of stewardship oversight organizations as a ministry that you can trust to put your gifts to great use. This recognition ensures your gift will yield fruit for generations, as you sow into the lives of the lost and hurting.
Living Hope International is a proud partner of the National Christian Foundation to help you give in tax-smart ways.

Many employers have programs in place to match the charitable contributions of their employees. Whether a partial match, or dollar-for-dollar, the impact of these contributions is significant and may be already available to you. Ask your employer about it today!
Offer Matching Fund Gifts
Doubling your gift by challenging others to step up to match is a proven method to involve others in a gift you are willing to give. Whether you find the match or we assist in this, the result can be significant and encouraging.
Gifts in Kind
With a broad scope of facilities and consumable costs, your gift will be put to use and benefit the ministry. We will handle the logistics of your gift from towels to tools, land to vehicles, hardware to software.
We believe in the “win, win, win” approach to cottage industry. We are interested in services or franchises that serve the needs of the ministry, enable those involved and generate revenue.
Consider how you can make a gift with lasting value. These are the perfect gifts to ensure your assets continue to bless others beyond your time on earth. These gifts include a variety of options including Gifts that Pay Income, Gifts During Your Life, and Gifts Upon Death. These gifts ensure future generations will benefit from your generosity and legacy.
Transferring gifts like stocks or bonds, is an easy way for you to help us in our mission.
- You receive an immediate tax deduction for the full market value of the stock.
- Tax savings! Donating stock allows you to avoid the capital gains tax you would owe if you cashed in the securities.
- Donating stock directly to Living Hope International–versus selling and donating the proceeds–can often reduce the cost of your gift by 50% or more.
It is a great way to protect these assets by gifting them to LHI.
