Charity Efforts

We have long supported three charities:  MSF/Doctors without Borders, The Global Fund for Women, and Heifer International. Why do we ask you to join us in supporting these exceptional charities?

  • They help people who need them without regard to politics.
  • They build equality and participation in society to create a more just and sustainable world.
  • Their work is life giving and will benefit the next generation that follows.

Doctors Without Borders: An international medical humanitarian organization created by doctors and journalists in France in 1971 and was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1999.

Heifer International: Works with communities to end hunger and poverty and care for the earth.

Global Fund for Women: Plays a leading role in advancing women’s rights by making grants that support and strengthen women’s groups around the world. Read about the 2011 Nobel Peace Prize winners supported by the Global Fund for Women.
