I give to this organization because it is one of the most effective organizations that I have ever seen. They are thoughtful, strategic and bridgebuilders. I'm inspired by their work and how successful they are at addressing the root causes of poverty. Jubilee USA runs bipartisans campaigns on debt, tax, transparency and trade policies. When they when a campaign, they can lift millions of people out of poverty. Jubilee USA Network has incredible leadership and is one of the most important organizations that I have ever worked with.
Review from Guidestar
Jubilee USA continues to be one of the most effective and strategic public policy organizations that exists. On a small budget, the organization coordinates religious institutions and development groups to tackle the root causes of poverty. Congressional Quarterly cites the work of Jubilee USA as on the last bipartisan efforts in Washington DC. In 2018 they won relief aid for Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands. They are moving forward and winning global debt, tax, transparency and trade policies that protect the vulnerable.
I was an intern at Jubilee USA and was inspired, challenged, and encouraged there. It is a group of people who deeply care about making a sustainable difference in the world and working toward an economy that supports everyone. Their morally driven and faith-based nature combines the philanthropic goals of several different monotheistic religions to come together for a common goal.
Jubilee USA Network is a non-profit that truly works for the most vulnerable in the world. Additionally, it orients its work around eradicating the roots of global poverty and economic inequality, that being debt relief. Jubilee USA Network is a small non-profit that does incredible work that challenges lives for millions of the most poor.
The Jubilee USA Network is one of the very best, most effective, nonprofits that I've been a part of. In the United States and around the world, Jubilee USA works on debt, tax, trade and transparency policies that help end poverty.

I have worked at Jubilee USA since June as the Communications Associate. I have had an extremely positive experience working with the staff at the Washington DC office. I am from Los Angeles and the Jubilee team has been very welcoming to me in my process of acclimation to DC life. I feel engaged everyday at work and they always have meaningful tasks for me to perform. I admire the passion that the staff has for economic justice and the amount of time they put into creating a more fair and just economy. It has been a very positive work environment and I have thoroughly enjoyed working for such a great organization.
Jubilee USA is an incredibly effective organization based in Washington DC that has a global impact. Jubilee works with Congress and International Financial Institutions to work for responsible lending and borrowing and increased debt relief for poor countries. It also works to curb tax havens and protect the poor from vulture funds. It does all of this work on a relatively small budget with the help and expertise of great staff. Your contribution to this small organization can have a wide impact for bringing about economic justice around the world.
Interning at Jubilee USA has been an exciting new learning experience. During my time here, I have been able to learn how a non-profit functions, the significance of nonpartisan advocacy and the importance of connecting with grassroots organizations. Jubilee’s mission is to end unjust debt and transform the international financial system to benefit and ensure participation of the most vulnerable. It is absolutely remarkable how much Jubilee USA accomplishes. It is amazing to be part of an organization that is highly motivated and who are looking for real solutions to current international problems. I have been able to learn new aspects of international relations especially in regards to the relationship between economics and human rights. I highly recommend interning at this non-profit, especially if you are interested in international relations and ethics. It has been an enjoyable learning experience and has opened my eyes, not only to the beautiful city of Washington D.C., but also to learning new and interesting concepts.
The work Jubilee USA accomplishes is truly amazing. Working as an intern, I saw firsthand how Jubilee works closely with its faith communities, congregations and partner organizations to mobilize efforts to help the world’s poorest. Though staffing and funding is limited Jubilee has tackled some of the biggest international finance issues of our time including working to stop Vulture Funds and playing a crucial role in helping the IMF and World Bank develop a Fair and Transparent Arbitration Process (FTAP).
