Your Donation


Your Impact


We utilize corporate donations.  From food to medical supplies, companies donate their surplus to Gleaning For The World.  What does this mean for you?  When you donate to Gleaning For The World, we multiply your donation by 100.  How?

Example:  Donated medical supplies arrive at our warehouse.  We take the conservative, mean estimate of the value the product.  In this instance, one shipment of medical supplies is valued at $350,000.  We are able to sort and process that shipment, then provide it to a hospital in Central America at $3,500.  They do not pay for the products.  We can provide supplies at 1% of the value of the product.  Therefore, for $1 donated we can provide $100 worth of relief.
