GRACE Cares, Inc. is commited to the principle that funding recipients can and should determine and implement projects in their own communities. Individuals and communities seeking support must match in-kind our donation and be able and willing to take charge of the project. Through our network of international partners we identify motivated individuals and communities with great ideas for making a difference in their communities. We focus on projects that fall within our mission and that require only a small amount of funding, typically less than $5,000. We believe personal involvement is important in developing a two-way learning relationship between donor and community; therefore we offer donors the opportunity to be involved as well as informated about the progress and impact of their donations. Where possible, we link volunteers with specific projects. Over 90% of funds received go directly to the projects.
