the beauty of orphanos is that its all about the children - 100% pass through on all donations and its never about them - its always about the kids
We have now been volunteers with Orphanos since 2006. It is the most giving organization, making sure that those they are serving and those that work for them are well taken care of emotionally, physically, and spiritually. It is truly the most amazing nonprofit that we have every volunteered with and we hope to continue to work alongside them for many years to come.
I have been one of the outside CPAs for Orphanos since it's inception. Orphanos holds to the highest standards of integrity in its financial and government reporting, as well as in every aspect of their ministry. The percentage of funds which actually go to their charitable programs (as opposed to administrative or fundraising costs) is among the best I've ever seen. Their heart is for children at risk, and they serve them very well in many ways. But they take their financial stewardship very seriously, too, and are very transparent in all of their financial dealings.
I have been on several missions trips thru Orphanos foundation. I love this ministry and the children they support all over the world. Wayne and Orphanos are incredible at leading short term missions teams, and make the entire experience meaningful and memorable. My wife and I have been supporters for over 10 years. Personally, I believe with all my heart that any money We can share with Orphanos is going to be used for children.
I have worked with Orphanos over the years with a great respect for who they are and what they do. They helped our church launch a missionary onto the field. The support covered finanical areas as well as well as accountability for a missionary on the field and pastoral care. Throughout the years they have provided training in standards of excellence for short-term mission trips. We have also used them for Perspective Classes and other mission training. Our church members that have joined on trips have been pleased with the preparation before the trip and the debriefing process afterwards. They sponsor children as well as great orphanages, giving people a number of areas to serve and financially support. The staff is professional with a great degree to be personal and excellent in all they do.
Orphanos has been, and always be, about the the children that it serves!
The purpose is make sure that orphan children get the best care that can be given. The administration of this program is funded by others sources so that the money given to a project, by the donor, will 100% to that project!!! This is remarkable!
Orphanos is currently working on strategies that will allow the orphanages to be self -sustaining in the future. They are implementing those strategies to ensure that the children will be able to have a way to take care of themselves and their families once they leave the orphanage. They are very aware that everyone needs to feel the need for dignity by being self-sufficient in order to help others!
Orphanos is the best!!!!
I sponsor 2 children through Orphanos. Orphanos does a great job and the staff is all so friendly and helpful. They keep me up to date on what is happening at the home where my sponsored children live and there are many opportunities to send cards and pictures to them and receive those from my kids as well. For many years I have sponsored children through various organizations and Orphanos is the Best of All!!
My wife and I have supported Orphanos for over 5 years and wish all charitable organizations operated like they do as a 100% pass thru. I was introduced to Orphanos by a board member and have the utmost repect and appreciation for the work that Wayne is doing to further the Kingdom by not only getting kids out of harms way but giving them a hope for their lives.
My family has supported Orphanos since its founding and have supported Wayne Sneed even longer. It is truly an exceptional organization of both the highest character and quality. 100% of all donations are passed through to the supported children and the organization and staff are all about establishing relationships with the children and serving their needs. We have been a part of four missions trips with Orphanos and have been incredibly blessed by each experience and have established life long relationships with the children there. If you desire to help God's children and witness God's heart for these children, there is no finer organization than Orphanos.
I have great respect for the Orphanos Staff and Leadership team. They are meticulous in making sure the organizations they assist are excellent in their support of children. Orphanos passes 100% of my contributions directly to the places they support, so my donations are making the most impact possible in the lives of at risk children around the world. Orphanos has a diverse list of orphanages/organizations they have investigated so I have flexibility to apply my donations to many opportunity areas. The Orphanos team ROCKS because God is specifically and precisely using them in a mighty way each and every day to enrich the lives of at risk children on a global scale.
My wife and I have supported this non-profit organization for over a decade. It is the only organization we support that has 100 % Pass- through on donations. It truly impacts the life of children at risk and changes the lives of those who joins them on a trip. If you want to have an impact on orphanges became a donor of this orginazation.
Excellent organization. I have supported this organization since it's inception. This organization holds itself to the highest levels of integrity. All donations go 100% to the desired Orphanage requested. There are fund raisers that help keep the lights on, but all donations to Orphanages go 100% to the organization. I have gone on a short term mission trip with Orphanos and the training was excellent. They train you for the culture where you will be serving. The training also included a Spiritual side that was invaluable when interacting with the children and helped put into perspective your personal objectives for serving. Would recommend to anyone, supporting or going on a mission trip with Orphanos personnel.
Review from Guidestar
Awesome organization. 100% pass-thru of donations. Every dollar goes exactly where you want the donation to go. I personally work with Orphanos in Colombia, ministering to children at risk in the Amazon area. Lives are being changed through Orphanos!
I personally support Orphanos and one of the orphanages it serves in Leticia, Colombia. Wayne and the Orphanos team have one goal...to minister to children in distress. I will continue to be involved with this work for many, many years to come.
Review from Guidestar
Have personally supported Orphanos for nearly 10 years. Traveled to the children served at the home in the Amazon jungle. Served on the Board and seen how many children have been helped. Focused intently on keeping overhead low so that we make as much go to the kids as we can. Amazed that our 100% pass thru has always worked - we even pay the wire fee from the operating budget and don't take it from the gift. Love that people will donate to Keep The Lights On (our overhead initiative). CPA said we are in the top echelon of charities nationwide on keeping overheads low. Involved because we really make a big difference. Ethics and doing things right are huge for us. Very rewarding to see the kids' smiles and see lives/hearts transformed.

I have donated money through Orphanos before and really appreciate the fact that 100% of my money goes to the person I am supporting. They don't take anything off for overhead which is nice.
