How will my donation be used?

When you choose to make a gift to LWR's General Fund, your gift is used where needed most. If you choose to support another fund, your gifts will be used until the needs there are met. After that, gifts are used where needs are greatest.

LWR always works with local partner organizations on carefully chosen projects that will reduce poverty and promote dignity, peace and justice in the most sustainable ways. Learn more about how we work.
