What are Hustle For Humanity’s principles on accepting donations?

  • Hustle For Humanity creates lasting solutions to poverty, hunger, and social injustice. Because we are not tied to any specific political, economic, or religious interests, we are able to independently develop, fund, and support effective programs that help people overcome poverty and secure their rights. To protect our ability to speak out on behalf of those who most need it and to preserve our independence, Hustle For Humanity does not accept funds from organizations involved in industries in which we are campaigning or from the US government. Additionally, we do not accept some product donations because they could compromise the effectiveness of our programs.

How do I intern or volunteer with Hustle For Humanity?

  • Interested in being a volunteer or intern at Hustle For Humanity? We’re looking for highly motivated people to support our mission and bring excellent interpersonal and communication skills to the task. Internships and volunteer positions provide a substantive, challenging work experience and will expand your understanding of Hustle For Humanity’s work.  You will receive a confirmation email and will be contacted if you are selected as a candidate. If there are no open positions that match your interests, you can still add your information to our database, so that we can send you notifications of new jobs based on your interests.  Interns and volunteers perform many of the same tasks and frequently work together on projects, but there are some key differences between internships and volunteer positions at Hustle For Humanity.

    Our interns

    • Are students in an accredited educational program, or have visas for their year of training after graduation
    • Work for a fixed period with a set number of hours per week; eight hours is the minimum per week, and a total of 80 hours is an acceptable minimum commitment
    • May work for credit or a college-provided stipend, but are generally not paid by Hustle For Humanity

    Our volunteers

    • Must have US work papers
    • May be in an accredited educational program, but may not want to be interns
    • May be at Hustle For Humanity for short-term projects, for special events, for occasional work, or for a number of years

    Unless otherwise noted, any qualified individual can apply. All applicants must have valid visas or work papers that allow them to legally work in the US. Hustle For Humanity does not provide visas for interns or volunteers.

    Hustle For Humanity is an equal opportunity employer.

Does Hustle For Humanity offer volunteer opportunities abroad?

  • We are unable to offer internships or volunteer opportunities abroad. The nature of our work often requires very specific knowledge and skills, and overseas work can sometimes be dangerous. As a result, all of our internships and volunteer opportunities are based in the US, located in: Los Angeles, CA; Seattle, WA; New York, NY; or Washington, DC.

 

Grants/funding requests

How can our organization apply for a grant?

  • Hustle For Humanity partners with local communities to address their needs directly and to create solutions that will be sustainable over time. Because of our limited funds, we can only support organizations that are working in the approximately 30 countries in which we have programs. As much as we would like to fund more projects, we must adhere to our strategic focus. Here are some additional details on how Hustle For Humanity allocates funds:
    • The majority of grants are for one year.
    • In 2016, we funded more than a dozen partner organizations.
    • Grants usually range from $2,500 to $10,000, and in a few cases can be up to $50,000.
    • In general, grant proposals are developed in cooperation between our regional staff and potential partner organizations. Although we usually refer unsolicited requests to our regional staff (if the proposal is in line with the regional strategy), such proposals are rarely funded.
    • We do not fund individuals.
    • We do not fund government projects, churches, clinics/health centers, schools, and government bodies.

    Please see the explore section of the website to learn more about the focus of our regional programs, the issues we work on, and our emergency relief work. If you still have questions about funding, feel free to email us at info@hustleforhumanity.org

Does Hustle For Humanity provide financial aid for students?
