We EXPAND organizations’ reach through practical growth strategies and assistance.

Results: The United States has over 1.5 Million tax-exempt charitable organizations, yet only 2.4% of them account for 90% of total reported revenue of $373.25 Billion. In other words, most nonprofits are competing for funding scraps even though there is more than enough financial food to go around. The problem we have seen is that most nonprofits do not have the experience, expertise and relationships to access those resources. BTI’s team of experts knows how to help nonprofits with their capacity development challenges.

We have been repeatedly impressed with the integrity and energy of Big Tree International founders; their vision in caring for others, going the second (and third) mile to bring help and relief to those most in need, and in sustaining a vision for what that care and provision needs to look like next year and in five or ten years in order to be effective and progressive. Five stars well deserved! The Spear Family Foundation

One of the best nonprofits we know of--our family enjoys partnering with BTI in their efforts, and plan to do so for years to come. The BTI team is highly dedicated to their mission, are highly effective, and are an inspiration to us. We strongly support them, and encourage others we know to invest in this work.

I'm really excited about the work BTI is doing in China, as they seek to help families in China. They are an advocate and a voice for so many precious babies and are there to offer guidance, comfort, and love to parents who might otherwise feel alone and unsure about decisions regarding their and their children's future. I whole-heartedly support Big Tree International and appreciate their candor and reporting on a situation that might otherwise be virtually unknown. They are making a difference in these families' lives in China, and I am excited to see what hope and blessing they can bring to hurting people in the future as this organization and its impact grows.

I met Matt and Hallie while they served alongside of me at a different non-profit, it was where I was first introduced to their genuine care and love for anyone they came in contact with. Being almost fourty years old and working in and with many other non-profits, along with following this one and watching it grow through the years seeing many wonderful results from the dedication invested, I can honestly say they are going the distance and care so much about every life they come in contact with. Hallie and Matt have spent time meeting with those who have questions and they always go above and beyond by even going as far as asking personal questions back with answers and remedies for those they see are in need spiritually and physically. They have always been folks who will stop what they are doing to be a friend if I've needed and have always remained very transparent while being extremely professional in all that they do. I'm am not one to put any man on a pedistool but I can say my hat goes off to them and they have my utmost respect for all that they do in their personal lives and their professional lives too! Thank you Matt and Hallie for all that you do!

I have known Matthew and Hallie of Bigtree for many years. The integrity they have exibited over the years has never wavered. I know that the support I send will be used as designated every time.

Bigtree does the work that I had only dreamed of doing - caring for the hurt and needy people in parts of the world where the need is greatest. Their work with orphans (of which they are adopting one), babies, prenatal training, and families are just a part of what they do.

The entire staff is deeply dedicated to the causes they are involved with, not seeing their work as 'just a job'. I have found the transparency of Bigtree to be a pleasant relief, knowing my investment is not wasted. I strongly encourage others to seriously look into supporting Bigtree International.

Big Tree International is an organization run by people of integrity. They are upfront about the work they do the needs they have and exactly where donations will be used. I appreciate all the work they do helping Chinese families and babies in their own country. They are very good at keeping their supporters up to date with newsletters and information.
They have changed the lives of the people they serve and helped educate supporters of the needs of others in our world.
