BENEFITING: BORGEN PROJECT
The Borgen Project is a 501c(3)-- tax-deductible-- charity organization that puts pressure on political leaders to support global poverty reduction programs by mobilizing citizens across the globe to take action, engage with political leaders, and spread awareness.
What can your dollars do?
An international aid agency spends $5000 to build a well that will assist hundreds of people. With $2000, The Borgen Project can meet directly with 70 Congressional offices to lobby on behalf of aid legislation that can benefit millions. Need an example? The Borgen Project, via direct lobbying efforts by staff and volunteer mobilization efforts (letters and calls to political leaders), supported the Water for the World Act, which provided clean water for 100 million people.
