Are you a U.S. based non-profit that helps communities in developing countries? Does your work focus on helping women and children? Do you support basic human needs such as food, water, shelter and education? If you answered “yes” to all of the above, you may be a great fit to be the Passports with Purpose charitable beneficiary in 2015!
After raising more than $25,000 for Sustainable Harvest International in 2014, Passports with Purpose is now accepting applications from potential charity beneficiaries for our 2015 fundraiser! Past projects we have supported include building libraries in Zambia, constructing water wells in Haiti, building two schools in Mali and supporting five families in Honduras.
We raise money by partnering with members of the travel blogging community who obtain donated prizes (hotel stays, resort packages, tours, travel gear and the like) to be given away in an online sweepstakes.
Applications are due Monday, March 16 and the announcement of the 2015 partner organization will be made by the end of April. The 2015 fundraiser will take place in mid November.

- Your organization must not have any religious affiliation.
- You must have the ability to accept funds through PayPal.
- You must be a United States-based non-profit organization with 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status with the Internal Revenue Service.

- Have high impact to an entire community.
- Directly benefit women and/or children.
- Are located in developing nations, where the funds raised will likely have a larger impact.
- Support basic human needs.
- Are simple and easy to explain to potential donors.
