Support WECO

We bring international closer to home

We bridge the concept of ‘international giving’ by connecting our donors and volunteers to the process of trustworthy community development. You can trust us with your time and donation because we take the time to get to know our partners.

These grassroots organizations understand both the problems and the solutions for their communities. They know what needs to be done, but also often lack the necessary resources to do it. That’s where we come in.

Your gift carries impact

100% of public donations support on-the-ground projects. Our start-up and administrative costs have been covered by seed funds, so we can guarantee that every cent of every dollar we raise from the public goes to our needs-based projects that help lift underrepresented communities.

Our donor partners are a vital part of our coalition, and make our work possible.
