Heart’s Home is a 501(c)3 charity organization. Donations are 100% tax-deductible. You are not allowed to pay for your own mission. Each volunteer is asked to find sponsors to support their time in mission, thus generating a network of compassion. This is accomplished in two ways in particular:
It takes $700 per month to fully support a volunteer. This covers health insurance, transportation, room and board and training. Contributions can be made on line or by responding to the sponsorship letter via recurring or a one-time donation.
Sponsors are invited to pray a decade of the rosary each day of the volunteer’s mission. This sponsorship is just as, if not more, important than financial aid.
Upon commitment to a mission one is asked to compose a brief sponsorship letter outlining the mission of Heart’s Home, one’s involvement in this mission and a request for sponsors in either one of the aforementioned categories. Once the letter has been proofread by the Heart’s Home staff, it may be sent to family, friends, parish communities and corporations. In addition to the letter Heart’s Home will provide you with informational pamphlets and addressed envelopes for donations. Individual fundraising events are also encouraged…be creative!
When donations arrive at Heart’s Home USA (Brooklyn, NY) the sponsor’s name, address and amount of donation will be entered into a database. You will then periodically receive updated reports so that you can be sure to thank your sponsors and keep up with your progress.
It is encouraged that you exceed your fundraising goal as all funds raised contribute to a communal pot. This ensures that Heart’s Home can continue to grow as an organization in various projects around the world.
As a way to thank your sponsors and strengthen your network of compassion, you are required to write a letter every other month informing your sponsors of your activities and encounters. This is an opportunity to keep your sponsors involved in the mission to which they contributed.
