Money or Goods

Because of shipping and airline luggage costs, it is often easiest to raise funds and send them electronically to Ecuador or Thailand for needed food and items to be purchased in country rather than to send the goods themselves. However, OSSO is grateful for all donations, and we also encourage you to view our needed donations list below.

employers Who donate

Many employers double, triple, or even quadruple donations to nonprofits like OSSO. Employers also often donate to charities in behalf of their employees' volunteer hours. Check with your employer. Ask those you work for and with if they are willing to make a contribution. We are happy to complete any verification paperwork necessary. Click here for a sample letter for donations.

TAX BENEFITS FOR GIVING

Whenever someone donates to OSSO, they are eligible to receive tax deductions. This can be a great motivator to individuals, organizations, and businesses to donate. Learn more about OSSO's charitable status and how to receive tax receipts from OSSO.

Needed Donations

Call our office at 208-359-1767 or email us at info@orphanagesupport.org to learn what you can bring or donate to best help the children OSSO serves.

While we appreciate all donations received, the needs of the orphanages are constantly fluctuating, shipping is expensive, and space is limited. We want your donation to help as much as possible. Below are some of the needs recently identified, but please refrain from collecting and bringing donations without first verifying the current needs of the orphanage with the OSSO staff in Rexburg, Idaho. 

ATTENTION ALL VOLUNTEERS: Please do NOT bring candy for the children.
