We at Penny Appeal USA are a diverse team addressing the needs of, and advocating for, impoverished communities. Our vision is to see a world in which inherited intergenerational poverty is a thing of the past, where marginalized communities no longer face socio-economic barriers to sustaining a livelihood for themselves and their families. We believe that addressing the root causes of poverty requires working WITH the world’s poor, rather than on their behalf. Through this inclusion, we believe we can bridge the gap between donors, beneficiaries, and diverse communities, to bring about a sustainable end to poverty in the United States and abroad.
We’re building a family of 4000 members through our Fantastic4K initiative to sustain our work as an exemplary multi-cultural non-profit working to eradicate poverty with sustainable programs. We want you to be part of a pioneer group of partners who understand the vital need for investing in infrastructure and operations. Your monthly F4K contribution will enable us to invest in training, planning, evaluation, and internal systems— as well as aid our efforts to raise money so we can sustainably and efficiently operate our programs.
