Matching donations happen when employers (usually) double a donation made to a non-profit organization by their employees – and thus, a “matching donation.” Many companies have matching programs, so check with your employer to see if your donation qualifies to be matched. Companies that have matching programs include: AMGEN, Alaska Airlines, Bank of America, Boeing, Boeing Employees Credit Union, The Gates Foundation, Getty Images, Microsoft, Starbucks, U.S. Bancorp. Unfortunately, we cannot initiate a corporate match; please contact your company to obtain the necessary forms and instructions for matching your donation.
STF has a several fold policy in who and how we partner with organizations. In addition to a thorough screening process, we attempt to have a hands on approach with the funds that STF invests in organizations. After finding efficient and effective non-profit partners, we monitor how your donations are spent.
It is very important to understand that STF is a grassroots movement. Our goal is not merely to raise money but to inspire people towards compassionate justice. We want to inspire people to care about the millions that are suffering from sex slavery. While your donations go to organizations, causes, and projects, individuals are more than welcome to give directly to any of the organizations we highlight through this website. We don’t care how…we simply want to invite people to engage the cause to end human trafficking.
We’re going to do what you do every day. Invest wisely. You write us a check for $100; we’re going to multiply that into $150, $200, $500, maybe even $1000, for example, so that your donation can rescue more victims of the sex trade. How? We hold annual fundraising events that can accomplish more in the way of abolition than what an average individual donor could do alone. Your donations make events like ‘Set Them Free Off-Road’ possible. Then, STF uses the money raised (minus expenses) to fund proven organizations that rescue and rehabilitate victims, and work to change local and national human trafficking legislation. While compassion is very important, our priority is not to write blank checks but to carefully fund organizations, projects, and causes that change the future for the victim stuck in the sex for sale industry.
Anyone can give. You don’t have to be a CEO, millionaire, or a Hollywood star to make an impact on the issue of human trafficking. But having said that, we don’t mind receiving donations from Donald Trump or Angelina Jolie. You can certainly just make a one-time donation but we are the most successful when people choose to renew their one-time donations each month. Make it fun! Donate each year on a special day…a day that is meaningful to you. Or donate in honor of a loved one.
You can donate through two main options: snail mail and via our website. Click on the Donate tab.
