What does it mean that you are a 501c3 in process?
It means that we have filed the application for our official 501c3 tax exempt status and are complying with all laws governing such organizations. All donations are tax deductible on a retroactive date starting on the date of filing, March 25th, 2016. For more information, see this letter from our attorney here.
Is my donation to Health 2 Humanity Global tax deductible?
Yes. All donations made to Health 2 Humanity Global are tax deductible upon the approval of our 501c3 status. But that only applies to donations made within the US. Please note that the cutoff for donations that count toward your 2016 taxes is December 31, 2016 at 11:59 pm EST. If you are mailing a check to our office, it must be postmarked by December 31, 2016.
Do I get a receipt for my donation?
Yes. If you donate online, you should receive a receipt via email within 24 hours. If you donate by check or money order, please allow 8 weeks for us to mail your receipt back to you.
Why did my payment get rejected?
We use a secure payment processor to ensure your information is safe, and sometimes it may reject legitimate payments. We recommend contacting your issuing bank to understand why the charge was blocked. If your bank cannot fix the problem, please reach out to us via this form.
How do you choose your locations?
We get reached out to each and every day by orphanages, community leaders, pastors, concerned citizens, and active individuals who seek our programs. Every time a new location reaches out to us they are put on a waiting list until we receive the necessary funds to be able to implement one of our training programs. We also make sure that the source is reliable, the location will be able to manage the program, and there are passionate individuals involved who are willing to oversee the program.
How much does it cost to implement one program?
It costs an average of $6000-7000 to fully implement and sustain a program for the six months that it takes for them to reach full sustainability.
Do any of these programs fail?
Although we have yet to see a program fail, our programs work like any other business startup and will inevitably fail in certain cases. Even so, we still stand behind our sustainable "Fight Against Giving" model; in which individuals are taught a skill as opposed to given an item. Even in the locations that will inevitably fail, our partners will be left with skills that they can use in a multitude of different ways. We will never leave someone stranded, and we will never compromise our model and create dependency.
How do you choose the individuals to be trained in international locations?
As a compliment to vocational training, trainees who demonstrate promise and commitment and meet certain additional criteria (listed below) receive subsidies to enable them to survive during the establishment of their micro-business. The criteria we use to determine eligibility are that the individual must be unemployed for 6 months, high school graduate, lives within 10 miles of production facility, three letters of recommendation from community, and no criminal history.
How do you manage the H2H International Partners?
We have a system of checks and balances and online tracking databases to make sure that everything is running smoothly in our international locations. Our checks and balances system runs through constant communication with our international managers, community leaders, and one additional source to make sure that everything is running according to plan.
What is Health 2 Humanity Corp?
Health 2 Humanity Corp is our partner organization also started by John Cefalu. H2H Corp develops products to be able to fund our international initiatives. As H2H Corp expands its product line, so do we expand our international model. This organization is where you can purchase high quality hygiene products that give back.
