Direct Charities Dot Org

WHAT WE ARE

Direct Charities Dot Org is a nonprofit corporation licensed in the State of Oregon, and dedicated to providing direct help to citizens of the United States of America. Unlike the big, top-heavy, well-advertised, often scandal-plagued charities we are all familiar with, Direct Charities Dot Org operates entirely through volunteer labor. It has no advertising budget, no lobbyists, makes no political contributions, has no CEO, no commercial offices, no paid staff, and very low over-head costs. Consequently, 100% of each individual donation reaches your intended recipient. You can depend on this because you send your donation directly to the recipient, not to Direct Charities Dot Org. Furthermore, as a donor, you select the recipient(s) of your donation(s) from a group of extraordinarily needy individuals whose needs and true circumstances have been screened and verified by the Direct Charities Dot Org volunteer staff.

 

HOW WE WORK

Direct Charities Dot Org receives applications, medical, and financial releases from USA citizens asking for help. Then our volunteers gather information from a variety of sources including doctors, hospitals, creditors, family members, attorneys, governmental agencies, etc., and verify the exact circumstances and needs of each applicant. Only those individuals determined to have real and critical needs, with no other means to meet these needs, are finally listed by  Direct Charities Dot Org.

 

Prospective donors review the biographies and life circumstances of each recipient, and determine which person or persons they wish to help. The donor can send directly to the recipient or give anonymously by sending the recipient(s) name(s) with their donation to Direct Charities Dot Org. A copy of the check sent to the recipient will be mailed to the donor, with absolutely no money paid to Direct Charities Dot Org by them or by the recipient. The role of Direct Charities Dot Org is simply to insure that the needs of recipients are valid, and that ALL funds go to the recipient.

 

WHY WE WORK FOR FREE

Direct Charities Dot Org was formed by retired teachers, volunteer attorneys, mental heath professionals and other community minded people, all sick and tired of seeing honest hard working American citizens ignored when catastrophic illnesses and accidents struck. Working Americans who not only lost their health but their incomes, homes, families, and futures to cancer, heart disease, and disabling accidents. Working Americans, whose insurance had run dry from months of fighting cancer, denied life saving treatment, while billions are spent on politics over seas. Clearly, America is no longer about Americans. Direct Charities Dot Org is a real way for us to help each other without contributing to the waste of government or the greed and politics of the charity giants.

 

HOW DO I KNOW IT’S TRUE

The primary watch dog of charities in America is the American Institute of Philanthropy in Chicago. Direct Charities Dot Org routinely gives all information requested for their review. In addition, the circumstances of all Direct Charities Dot Org recipients are reviewed by our volunteers an average of every sixty days to make certain they still meet our criteria. Updates on the condition and progress of individual recipients will be posted on our website. Donors can be assured that anyone who remains listed is still eligible.

 

CAN I DONATE ANONYMOUSLY?

Yes, simply tell us the person(s) you wish to help and make checks payable to Direct Charities Dot Org. We will pay your chosen recipient(s) that exact amount with our check, and mail you a copy. To give anonymously mail to:
