Become A Builder

Why become an All Hands and Hearts Builder?

Disasters are unpredictable –– effectively responding to their impacts around the world requires sufficient funds to get our teams on the ground quickly and stay to assist with the long road to recovery. As a monthly donor to All Hands and Hearts, you are helping to bring hope and assistance to communities in need by ensuring we are able to arrive early and stay late. 

We have earned a 4-star rating by Charity Navigator for the seventh year in a row. This year only seven percent of rated non-profits received this distinction for financial and operational efficiency, meaning you can rest assured that your donations are going to the families, students and communities that need it most.

“I can talk for hours about the impact AHAH has had in my life. AHAH has empowered me to help those affected by natural disasters. Seeing first-hand the impact that a group of well-organized volunteers can make has completely changed my outlook in life.”

I became an active fundraiser and monthly donor to AHAH when my 20 year old son went with All Hands to the Philippines after Hurricane Haiyan. The experience changed his life. My first field experience was working with him in Denham Springs LA, and that changed MY life. Working repeatedly in NC following Hurricane Florence, I have come to appreciate how restoring hope by restoring a place to live supports individuals and respects their history. I choose to support AHAH because I know from personal experience how this organization prioritizes community connections and provides leaders with expertise and passion to make it possible for volunteers to give their all.”

“I have been a volunteer with All Hands since their first project in Biloxi, Mississippi, in 2005 after Hurricane Katrina and was immediately “blown away” with the impact that was being done by spirited volunteers on a shoestring budget.
Since then I have volunteered in Haiti, Puerto Rico, Saint Thomas, Louisiana and help create project Long Island in 2012 after Hurricane Sandy devastated my communtiy. As a long-time board member of All Hands and also the recently created All Hands and Hearts, I feel the most effective form of giving/support is long after the original disaster occurs and on a monthly basis, so the executive AHAH team can plan long-term to help those in need continue to recover.
Monthly donations help AHAH budget efficiently and provide the greatest possible service to a devastated community for the lowest possible cost.”
