How to Help
Here are many ways for you to help make things better. Your tax-deductible donation however small, makes a big difference in the lives of families we support. Here are many ways you can help us:
Donate Children’s Books
If you are in the San Francisco Bay Area, we look forward to receiving your book donations. The books are curated, compiled and shipped to remote elementary schools across SE Asia. Book shipments are sent to fill school libraries in areas so remote they are delivered via bus, jeep, pedicab and even by porters. The response we get from these schools is simply heartwarming. English language reading books illustrated in color are difficult, if not impossible to find in these remote areas of the world.
Donate backpacks and school supplies
Each year we distribute backpacks filled with school supplies to children who do not have the means. Your donations of the bags, papers, notebooks, pencils, scissors, sharpeners, rulers are much needed. These basics are a strain for many families who sometimes live on less than $1 a day. Alternatively, you can sponsor fully-equipped backpacks for an entire classroom at $10-$15 a backpack.
Benevity, Silicon Valley
You may donate through your Benevity program at work which gives you the flexibility of monthly deductions. In many cases, your company will match your donation, which doubles the impact of your donation. Simply enter our EIN Number: 26-2884628 and address: 329 Primrose Road, Mailbox 117451, Burlingame, CA 94011-7451.
While shopping at Amazon or Whole Foods, you can also shop for a cause. Amazon will donate 0.5% of the price of your eligible AmazonSmile purchases to the Corazon Roxas Foundation whenever you shop.
Many companies offer a matching gift program to encourage philanthropy among their employees. A matching gift is a great way for you to increase your contribution. Contact your human resources office to see if your company has a matching gift program and how you can participate.
