Lend a Hand and Change a Life.

The reason is simple– nothing matches the satisfaction and fulfillment that comes from alleviating the suffering of others. Their smiles of gratitude are worth the world, and the feeling of seeing the fruits of your labor of love is unmatched. You’ll want to see those smiles again and again.

    Corporate Matching

    At Africa Relief and Community Development, we are dedicated to providing comprehensive humanitarian relief to various communities in the African continent. Our organization accepts donations of all kinds to assist in our developmental work, aid, and relief. An easy way to double your contribution is through employee giving programs. Many corporations match employee donations (or the tax- deductible component of your membership) to our organization. If you volunteer with us, your employer may also provide us with a grant as a way to recognize your ongoing support. Thanks for checking to see if your company offers these programs!

    Employee matching gift programs are corporate giving programs in which the company matches donations made by employees to eligible nonprofit organizations. It’s an easy way to double your contribution to us!

    Requesting a matching gift or volunteer grant is normally a five-minute process which must be initiated by the donor/volunteer. You can do this by filling out and submitting a form provided by your employer or through an electronic submission process.

    A partnership grant is a financial award provided by government bodies, private foundations, or corporate entities to support collaborative projects between multiple organizations.

    These grants are designed to encourage and facilitate cooperation among different stakeholders, including non-profits, educational institutions, community groups, and sometimes for-profit businesses, to achieve common goals. The primary aim of a partnership grant is to leverage the unique strengths and resources of each participating organization to address complex issues more effectively than any single entity could on its own.

    Volunteers can significantly impact African communities through NJ-based charity programs by offering their time, skills, and resources.
    By engaging in these programs, volunteers can participate in initiatives focused on education, healthcare, sustainable development, and emergency relief efforts. Their involvement can range from on-the-ground activities in African communities, such as teaching, medical assistance, and infrastructure development, to supporting roles from New Jersey, including fundraising, advocacy, and project planning.
