What are Helen’s Gifts?
Simple and straightforward, Helen’s Gifts represent the various programs and tools that are a part of HKI’s broad range of work. Our mission is to help vulnerable people living in poverty around the world who suffer needlessly from preventable blindness and low vision, disabling diseases and malnutrition.
Our three gift themes also express the profound legacy of our co-founder, Helen Keller. You can share your gift by sending unlimited e-cards that honor and inspire others to See Possibilities, Overcome Obstacles or Fulfill Potential.
How does it work?
Choose a gift theme, make your donation, select an e-card design, and personalize with your message. Send your e-card to as many friends and loved ones as you’d like.
How will my gift be used?
Your gift will help to support the full range of Helen Keller International’s work in 21 countries, including the U.S. It will be used where it is most needed, enabling HKI to deliver services with rigor, efficiency and compassion. Find out more about our fiscal responsibility and how we ensure that your donation goes where it's needed most to make the greatest impact.
Is my donation tax-deductible?
Yes. All gifts are deductible to the full extent allowable by law. Your receipt will be provided upon completion of your donation and you will also receive a gift acknowledgment by mail.
Why should I give to HKI?
Helen Keller co-founded HKI in 1915 with the firm belief that every human life has equal value. More than a century later, HKI is still at work furthering Helen’s extraordinary legacy with landmark efforts that save vision and transform lives around the globe.
Nearly 85 cents of every dollar we spend goes directly to our programs. HKI has earned Charity Navigator’s highest rating—4 Stars—for the past five consecutive years. HKI is a Charity Watch Top-Rated Charity. And, HKI was recently named a Top Charity by GiveWell.
Of every dollar we spend, 84.8 cents goes directly to help save the sight and lives of vulnerable children and their families.
“HKI...gets more bang for the buck than almost any group I can think of.”
