“Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, what are you doing for others?” Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Empowering The Poor believes that each of us can serve the poor. We cannot empower impoverished families and communities to self-reliance without your support. You can donate your GOD-given talents, skills, work-experience, car, office space, etc. A gift as small as $5 goes a long way in saving lives in Africa or a $50 gift of learning can help provide personalized academic support to lower-income students in the Fredericksburg, Virginia area. Get involved with Empowering The Poor. You can make a difference.

DONATE: online at or mail in your check or money order at Empowering The Poor, Inc. P.O. BOX 42031. Fredericksburg, VA 22404.

  • Donate your used vehicles: Mini-vans, Vans, pick-up trucks, ambulances, etc. We work in remote, rural, and impoverished communities in Africa and Fredericksburg, Virginia where we desperately need to transport students to and from our academic support sites.
  • Donate laptops, desktops, printers, and other offices supplies for our staff in the U.S.

All In-Kind and financial donations are tax-deductible.
