In addition to being of service, we believe that it is very important to be grateful for our blessings and to give back to those in need. We also think that most people feel the same way and genuinely want to help.
Rather than charging you a bunch of fees, like many programs do, and then donating a percentage to charity on your behalf, we encourage you to share some of what you save with our $0.00-lender-fee platform with those who may need it.
With so many great causes that need support- even within our own community- choosing one or two can be challenging. Below are just a few that we've donated to as individuals or as an organization.
Please feel free to click through and make a donation to any or all of them. Giving is better than receiving!

St. Jude is unlike any other pediatric treatment and research facility. Discoveries made here have completely changed how the world treats children with cancer and other catastrophic diseases. With research and patient care under one roof, St. Jude is where some of today's most gifted researchers are able to do science more quickly.
St. Jude researchers are published and cited more often in high impact publications than any other private pediatric oncology research institution in America. St. Jude is a place where many doctors send some of their sickest patients and toughest cases. A place where cutting-edge research and revolutionary discoveries happen every day. We've built America's second-largest health-care charity so the science never stops.
All patients accepted for treatment at St. Jude are treated without regard to the family's ability to pay
Want to send your support to a soldier in harm's way, but have no idea of what to send, who to send it to, or how to send it?

However, due to overwhelming requests, on 1 January 2004 the Any Soldier effort was expanded to include any member, of any of the Armed Services, in harms way.
