Their lives are changed. Your heart grows.

Around the world, millions of people live in desperate poverty. Followers of Christ want to serve Him and make a meaningful impact, but they don’t always know the best ways to proceed and make an eternal impact. At Bright Hope, we bring together Allies against extreme poverty, bringing mutual transformation for the people we serve…and us in the process.

A Partner You Can Trust For Over 50 Years!

One of Bright Hope’s highest values is integrity. We understand the value of every dollar we receive and the difference every dollar can make in the life of someone in extreme poverty. We value the trust you have given us to effectively and efficiently deliver help to those in need.
