Why donate to Love's Bridge?
We understand there are many worthwhile causes which need support, and you may be wondering why you should choose Love’s Bridge. We’ve outlined just a few of the reasons why we believe donating to our projects is a wise decision.
Nearly 100% of your donation will be spent directly on improving the lives of Perm’s street children. We have no US office, and our Perm office is based in our social center, meaning we pay no rent for administrative purposes. 3% of credit card donations are paid to the credit card company, and 0.5% off all donations are used for bank transfer fees. The remaining 96.5% of credit card donations, or 99.5% of check donations, are used directly to help Russian street children.
We are the only organisation of our kind in Perm – we work with the kids that all others have given up on, and we have a proven track record of helping them turn their lives around. Without Love’s Bridge, thousands of children would be left with no one to turn to.
Our annual budget is only $130,000 – your donation will make a significant difference to us, no matter how insignificant it may seem to you.
Over the last ten years we have had a visible influence on Perm and its most vulnerable children and young people. Our programs have been replicated by the local authorities as well as authorities in other regions of Russia.
