BELIEVE International is a non-profit 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization (Tax ID#: 26-0025823). Your contribution is tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.
The BELIEVE mission is to help disadvantaged youth in the Philippines become people of integrity and leaders in their communities by providing them the resources needed to attend school and by teaching them positive life-long values and leadership principles. We do this by:
Our volunteers meet monthly with students and their parents, teach them positive social values and encourage them to live and practice these in their homes. We focus on these values: Trust, Excellence, Accountability/Self Reliance, Mutual Respect, Service, Maintaining Positive Family Relationships, and Leadership.
BELIEVE International (USA) and BELIEVE-Philippines are run by unpaid volunteers at all levels. These successful business and professional people freely donate their time and talents to help lift sponsored youth out of poverty. The volunteers in America provide the overall direction, training, and fundraising.
Because BELIEVE is a totally volunteer organization, essentially all of the donations received are sent to the Philippines to support the education of sponsored students.
