FAQs About Donations

Please Consider This Before Cancelling Your Recurring Gift!

Amref Health Africa is a highly-rated charity! Over the years, we’ve received many accolades, like the Hilton Humanitarian Prize from the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation, The Clinton Global Initiative, and The Gates Award for Global Health, and we have been a Classy 100 Honoree. We’re also an accredited Better Business Bureau Accredited Charity, with a Platinum rating on GuideStar and a four-star rating on Charity Navigator. You can give confidently knowing that for the last 65 years, we’ve been helping vulnerable communities with critical health services and trained health workers!

1.    We’ve been reaching more lives each year!

Year after year, our reach increases across the continent. As global health emergencies evolve, now more than ever, we need to provide more people with the healthcare they need. We’re seeing a ripple effect on the ground. As droughts prolong, dehydration and malnutrition increase. As water wells dry up, water-borne diseases spread. As family farms and local produce suffer, high blood pressure and other NCDs rise from increased consumption of processed foods. We pride ourselves on providing health care, but we are equally working to create sustainable health solutions that address the changing world we live in. We can’t do it without you.

2.    Continuous support keeps communities supported

Recurring gifts help us plan for the future and ensure our programs throughout the continent are maintained and effective. Additionally, recurring donations reduce administrative costs, so more of your donation goes directly toward programming. In 2022, 89% of all funds raised went toward our programming. That means more health workers, improved clinics, increased water access, greater youth empowerment, and safer deliveries and pre-and post-natal care!

3.    You can reduce your amount or frequency or pause it until you’re ready again!

If you still want to give but can’t give as much, you can change your gift amount or how often you give. If you met one of our ambassadors in your area and signed up after talking with someone, give us a call at 212-768-2440 or email [email protected], and we can pause or reduce your donation amount and frequency to what will work best for you!

If you donated online through our website, you can go to https://www.classy.org/sso. Scroll down to Recurring Donation and select Edit Donation. Here, you can change the Frequency, Donation Amount, and Processing Date. Or you can reach out to us directly at [email protected] or 212-768-2440, and we can make the adjustments for you.

4.    Consider a peer-to-peer fundraiser on our behalf!

If you want to continue to help but can’t financially, we can help you create a peer-to-peer fundraising page, or you can do so directly on social media sites like Facebook and Instagram. With a fundraising goal of your choice, you can rally your network to raise money for a particular focus area or project! We can help you create the content to help you reach your goal!

5.    Consider becoming an unofficial brand ambassador!

Amref Health Africa has been around since 1957, and while we’ve done so much work over the decades, there are still so many people who aren’t aware of our impact. If you cannot give financially, consider subscribing to our emails or following us on Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, or LinkedIn and sharing or commenting on posts that resonate with you. Your like or interaction can appear on someone else’s feed, and more people can learn about our work! If you’re not on social, that’s okay. Word of mouth is always a great way to spread awareness about who we are, what we do, and what we mean to you!
