For the fourth year in a row, Avivara has earned the award "Top-Rated Non-Profit" from the organization, Great Non-Profits. Thank you to all of our donors and volunteers who submitted reviews on Avivara's behalf. If you are considering donating to Avivara, but still have questions about how effective it is as an organization, please go to the Great Non-Profits website and read some of the past reviews that have been submitted.

How will my donation be used?

We maintain a firm and ongoing commitment to our donors to ensure that their contributions are used wisely and appropriately. Therefore, we adhere to the Standards for Charitable Accountability as developed by the U.S. Better Business Bureau Wise Giving Alliance. And, as you can see from the graph to the left, since our inception in 2008, over 91% of our expenditures have gone directly towards our programs. (Truthfully, it costs money to raise money and administer it appropriately, so we have established accounting procedures that accurately describe our fund-raising and administrative expenses. Therefore, we will never make the exaggerated claim that 100% of your donation will go to programs.)

Thank you again for your desire to create a more just world through the power and dignity of education. Your contribution does have an IMPACT!

(All contributions to Avivara are tax-deductible in the United States as permitted by law.)
