Frequently Asked Questions

I have a question about donating to Action Against Hunger or about my previous donations.

THRIVE DONORS: If you have an existing Monthly Donation with Action Against Hunger USA, check out our dedicated resources page for the THRIVE community.

MONETARY DONATIONS: Action Against Hunger USA is able to accept donations from our supporters through a variety of methods and tools! If you have questions about what kinds of donations we accept, or how to get your donation to us, visit our Ways to Donate page.

RECEIPTS AND MORE: If you need a donation receipt, or have another question for us about making a donation, contact our Donor Services team.

FOOD AND PHYSICAL GOODS: We are not able to accept donations of food or other goods for our programs. The cost of storing, shipping, and distributing goods internationally is extremely high, requires complicated logistics, and is time-consuming. We strive to source all of our program supplies as locally as possible to reduce cost and to use our time and money for saving lives!

COMPANIES AND FOUNDATIONS: We accept donations from any company that wants to have an impact on the fight against hunger. Check out our Ways to Give page for ways to complete your donation.

For official partnerships, as much as we would like to work with all the compassionate companies that reach out to us, we have limited resources to fulfill all partnership needs. Because of our limited resources, we can only partner contractually with organizations who can provide a minimum donation of $50,000 for a year or above. If you feel like this still interests you and would like to discuss further, you can Contact our Partnerships Team.
