Q. How can I help you in your mission to serve those in poverty, beyond sponsoring a child or elderly person?
A. Although Unbound’s focus is the one-on-one relationship developed through sponsorship, we have many different funds and initiatives that support our work.
- Give to our special funds.
You can make one-time donations to our special funds, which have grown over the years to help families in different ways.
Other funds include Disaster Response for times of natural disasters and other emergencies, Education to help youth complete their higher education, and Microfunding that help provide seed capital for micro-loans, build sustainable agriculture projects, or buy tools and develop marketable skills.
- Spread the word.
We’re always looking for people to share their firsthand experience of us with others. Our sponsors are also our biggest advocates!
Share your review of Unbound on Great Nonprofits, an organization that encourages people to find and share information about different charities.
Other options for sharing our work include blogs, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram. (Check out seven ways to stay connected here.)
- Consider Unbound when gift and estate planning.
Wanting to include an estate gift in your will or trust, give through a life insurance policy or donate non-cash assets? Our planned giving services can help you with all these and more.
Gifts can be sent to a specific program or fund, such as the Education fund, or support Unbound’s general mission. Unbound also offers charitable gift annuities, charitable remainder trusts and employer matching gifts.
If you have questions or would like to request specific information on planned giving, feel free to contact us through this form. There is no obligation, and any information provided will be kept confidential.
- Volunteer your time and experience.
Our volunteers are a crucial part of the Unbound world. They help us find sponsors, raise funds and promote Unbound at different events in their community.
From climbing mountains and running marathons to hosting bake sales and selling crafts – the ways to share Unbound are just as creative and diverse as our volunteers. If you have an idea about using your unique gifts to share Unbound or just want encouragement, feel free to
contact our outreach volunteer team anytime.
If you live in the Kansas City area, you can volunteer in an extra special way by helping process letters from our sponsored friends to their sponsors! (In 2012, our volunteers handled more than 1 million letters and donated more than 8,000 hours — a huge blessing for the entire Unbound community.)
