How it works « International Aid Services America

Contribute
Make a tax-deductible contribution
IAS America is funded through the generous financial gifts of partners like yourself who desire to change developing world lives.  As a not-for-profit, 501(c)(3) public charity, your donation of any amount to IAS America is tax-deductible to the full extent allowed by law.  To make a donation, you can contribute through our secure giving link online where you can choose to make a one-time gift or a recurring contribution to IAS .  Should you prefer, you can also mail donations to: IAS America, 60 W Terra Cotta Ave, Ste 169, Crystal Lake IL, 60014.  Upon receipt of your donation, IAS America will issue a contribution receipt to you.

Invest
As little as $150 is all it takes to start a small business
Your contribution to IAS America is really an investment in developing world lives.  It’s a hand-up out of poverty, not a one-time hand-out.  In fact, with programs like our microfinance initiatives, your investment often is “recycled” anywhere from ten to fifteen times.  That means that every gift of $150 towards microfinance has the potential to be loaned to a dozen individuals – becoming a strategic investment.  In addition to providing loan capital, your microfinance contribution also helps to support small-scale entrepreneurship by providing business training and financial services to a hardworking man or woman.  Your investment in IAS will not only help developing world individuals escape poverty; it also has the potential to change the course of families and entire communities through its ripple effect.  No wonder we call it “MicroPower”.  Make your investment now in the work of IAS America.

Lifestyle Options
Contribute monthly
IAS America financial donor/partners are the sustaining force behind our efforts.  Without concerned, regular monthly donors, the IAS mission and mandate would go unfulfilled.  If you have given to IAS in the past, please consider becoming a monthly donor to the organization.  Many of our regular contributors set up monthly bill payments to IAS online or through their local bank.  Or, you can also set up a monthly withdrawal through our secure donation link from your checking or savings account.  Of course you can also schedule monthly credit card payments online as well.  Simply follow this giving link to set up your secure account with IAS America.  We value your partnership – thank you for your faithful regular giving to IAS America.  If we can assist you in any way in helping to establish your form of monthly contribution, please contact us at 815.444.0424.

Become a Facebook Friend
For a limited time, help us fight poverty simply by clicking to become an IAS friend on Facebook.  For every new friend, a matching dollar pledge has been made to IAS by another generous donor.  So, you can contribute to IAS simply by “liking” IAS on Facebook!  Each click donates another dollar, so share IAS with your friends.   Thousands of new IAS friends equals thousands of dollars for the world’s less fortunate – please help us, one click at a time, by making IAS your new Facebook friend.
