Donating to the Food Relief Program

[ All donations are tax deductible within the U.S. ]

Every month the Bhaktivedanta Ashram feeds over 6,000 needy children in the flood and drought afflicted areas of Orissa and Tamil Nadu, India. If you would like to help sponsor food for these needy children, please follow the instructions below.

Note: 100% of donations go directly to feeding the poor.

Monthly sponsorships: For as little as $11 you can become a monthly sponsor. To donate online by credit card, choose your donation amount from the box on the right. After choosing your donation amount, select the “monthly” option and then click on the “donate” button. Credit cards from all countries are supported. (Credit card donations are processed through a 128bit secure server.)

One Time Donations: Besides monthly sponsorships, you can give a one time donation towards the food relief activities. Inform us how many people you would like to feed, and in whose memory the distribution is being done. For just $10 you can feed around 50 people. Use the box on the right to make your one time donation by credit card.

Utilization of Donations:
