Help Kiva raise $700,000 by May 23


We’ve passed our original goal of $500,000 in donations this week, and now we’re stretching for a new goal: $700,000. This amount will allow us to facilitate $5.6 million in loans!

*Our donation meter updates twice a day to show your support.

For every $1 in donations,
Kiva generates $8 in loans.


Why donate? Last year Kiva received about 47% of the funds we need from the suggested donation made with each loan – but that's not enough to keep us going. For every $25 loan made on the website, Kiva spends about $3.50. That money goes to:

  • Finding the most innovative organizations to partner with in more than 83 countries around the world.
  • Creating loans that better serve borrowers' needs and help them access education, clean energy and agricultural solutions.
  • Staffing the teams that build and maintain the Kiva website and systems that facilitate loans to more than 4,000 borrowers each week.
  • Supporting 500 volunteers around the world who do everything from translating loans to meeting with borrowers.

Every dollar counts. Will you help us get there?

Kiva is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. If you pay taxes in the United States, your donation may be tax deductible.

Many employers will match donations made to Kiva. After making your donation, please check with your employer to see if you can multiply your impact!
