Thank you in advance for your generosity.
Sahaya International is a USA registered 501(c)3 organization (based in Davis, California).
Contributions to Sahaya International are tax-deductible in the USA according to standard IRS rules. Our tax ID number is 68-0434770.
As we are 100% volunteer based, the maximum of your contribution directly supports the programs.
If you have any questions about donating, don’t hesitate to contact us.
You can donate to support our programs in multiple ways: online (credit card, Paypal, Venmo), by check, cryptocurrency, planned giving (bequest), and through donating a used vehicle. Scroll below to learn more about the various options. Also scroll below on ways to donate if you are outside of the USA.
- ONLINE DONATION: You can donate with your credit card, Paypal, or Venmo via the GiveButter platform. Click on the button below to go to the donation form in a new page. This donation page is secure. On the form, please indicate in the “add a message” section if you want your contribution to go to a specific program. Otherwise we will assign your general donation where the need is the highest at that moment. Note that the Givebutter form by default asks you to leave a tip for the Givebutter platform, but you can change the % of tip (and even make it zero). Sahaya does not receive the tip you leave, so this decision is totally up to you.
- Donation via checks:
100% of donations made via checks is sent overseas to directly support the programs.
Please make your check payable to “Sahaya International”.
Because Sahaya has a number of programs in different countries, please indicate if your contribution is meant for a specific program.
Please also provide your email address so we can e-mail you a tax receipt. If you prefer a hardcopy tax receipt to be mailed to you, just let us know.
Mail your check to:

- Donation via Paypal: Please note that Paypal payments are associated with service charges (approx. 2.5 to 3% of your contribution). On the Paypal page, please indicate for which program your contribution is meant.
You can also send a Paypal eCheck. The service charge that Paypal deducts for such e-check is $5, regardless of the amount, and you can pay directly from your regular bank account (so you don’t need a credit card). So if you plan to donate a considerable amount, this $5 fee may be lower than the % mentioned above. Click here to lean more about e-checks..

- NEW: we can accept cryptocurrency. There are 2 partners that we are signed up with, which will convert your crypto donation to cash and transfer it to us. Please use either this button or the form below to get started:
