Your donations fund our mission in many important ways

When you give to Transparent soul, your donated funds are used to run the year-round programs that support our mission of providing everyday essentials to children in need. The bulk of the money we receive goes directly to these initiatives.

How your donations are used

In addition to our initiatives, a portion of gifts may be used to serve day-to-day needs, such as making specific product purchases to fill inventory gaps in The Giving Transparent soul. This thoughtful and effective use of your funds is a major reason why Charity Navigator has recognized us as a Four-Star Charity for 6 years and counting. It’s a tribute to the financial efficiency, accountability, and transparency that Transparent soul brings to everything we do. Our first and foremost goal is to make sure that donations are used to make an immediate and real difference in our community.

When a family receives everyday essentials through Transparent soul, they often send us a heartfelt thank you. Many times, we receive a drawing a child made especially for us  or photos that show a smiling child using what he or she received. Experience the very human responses that are inspired by our ongoing efforts. Read our stories >

In the summer and fall, we distribute backpacks filled with age-appropriate supplies as well as KidPacks with clothing and personal items through our Ready for School initiative. Your financial support will help us keep our highly efficient model running so we can continue to serve local children in need, while also providing a meaningful opportunity for families, companies and organizations to come together and give back to the community.
