Penny Appeal USA is a great example of what can be accomplished when people come together for good without ego and with honesty. From their down to earth professional staff to their dedicated volunteers every interaction with them has been fantastic.

Their programs are effective and the way they report on the work they are doing is clear, transparent and honest.

I would not hesitate to donate again and recommend to others to do so as well.

Penny Appeal is a nonprofit organization that not only invests in communities internationally, but domestically as well. For being the new kids on the block, Penny Appeal has brought creativity, team work, leadership development, and community building to areas they are focused in. There programs strive to empower families in socio-economic disadvantages by teaching them how they can use their local resources to alleviate cyclical poverty. Great organization!

Penny Appeal USA definitely puts the “USA” in its name. Being in the non-profit field for many years, I can clearly see their on the ground work, and the impact it has in the US. They are very volunteer-driven and work in tandem with staff to accomplish great work. Their well program and OK program are extremely notable, due to the conscious effort to ensure donors know where their donations are going. Lastly, also as a donor, their branding and web presence is absolutely phenomenal, spans a large audience, and is very theme orientated. These folks are not afraid to bring livelihood, fun, and joy while working towards ending poverty. Rather than showing beneficiaries suffering, they show the outcome, the smiles of children and family. They’re as orange as it gets.

Working for Penny Appeal USA has been the best professional decision I have made in my career thus far. The environment and leadership is conducive for professional, academic, and personal growth. Theres a true workplace harmony and mutual respect among the staff that I have never quite experienced in a job before. From a behind-the-scenes perspective, the focus is always on ethics whether its a operational practice or a programatic practice. This makes it easy for me to personally promote the mission and organization because of the moral integrity I witness on a day to day basis. My favorite thing about working with the Penny Appeal USA team is the young and innovative staff and their academic and tech-savy approach to problem-solving in the modern age.

I have had a great experience working with Penny Appeal. Their team in Florida does exceptional work and is very assessable and transparent in their operations. They support inporantant causes and aim to include the community in the effort to bring about change- something that is not always a common aspect of relief and humanitarian work. Great job!

Smart sustainable programs. Passionate driven employees. Team oriented volunteer group.
Penny appeal USA has accomplished a lot for recently launching and I’m so proud that I got it to be part of that process. Not only do they only have international programs but also domestic, which is really important to me.
Their multifaceted programs help target key areas that need improvement (in a particular issue like water insecurity in south Central Asia) which is why they are sustainable long term solutions. I love that they thought about everything. And this is due to having a young but well experienced team of employees. I am proud that I am part of Team Orange because I really feel like I’m making a difference in helping put these programs in action. And it’s fun- team orange is like a 2nd family to me.

Penny appeal was brought to my attention by a friend who was a volunteer and need help organizing. I started out helping this charity by just setting up and organizing. I really didn’t know exactly what penny appeal was or how it helped the community. It wasn’t until the end of my first day where i met the CEO and sat down with him and had a conversation about the organization. This charity is absolutely amazing and helps out so many people in need. Need that the average person doesn’t think about. From the digital divide project to helping set up water wells in African countries.
I’ve been volunteering with penny appeal for over a year now and i still feel the joy and self accomplishment as i did that first day.

I've confidently donated to Penny Appeal USA trusting that my money is going to good use. I've never once doubted the work they do because it's genuine and you can see the results! And on top that, a genuine and kind staff with an open door policy makes it all the more welcoming. Glad to be on #teamorange!
