Did you know that there’s currently over $234 billion sitting unused in donor-advised funds (DAFs)?
That’s a staggering amount of potential waiting to be harnessed for transformative change. Imagine the transformation that could take place if just a fraction of these funds were actively put to work. Turn that potential into reality through the exciting #HalfMyDAF Challenge—and you can be a pivotal part of that transformation.

Direct Your Impact
At Kinship United, our mission is to heal the traumas caused by disaster, trafficking, and poverty. When you allocate funds from your DAF, you can choose to support:
Orphan Rescue and Care
Orphan Rescue and Care
Provide care, shelter, and love to children without a place to call home. Rescue and rehabilitate children and young adults from the dark world of human trafficking. In a nurturing environment, our children find safety, love, and the opportunity to thrive.
Caring for the Caregivers
Caring for the Caregivers
Support women in crisis, offering them safety, dignity, and a fresh start. Give a caregiver her first pair of glasses, her first dental check-up, and more. We empower widowed caregivers to gain true independence. Through skills training and community support, these resilient women transition from dependency to self-reliance, rebuilding their lives with dignity and hope.
Strengthen communities by supporting holistic care initiatives, infrastructure development, and fostering unity and resilience in vulnerable areas. Kinship Projects are at the heart of our mission, creating sanctuaries that bring together orphaned children, widows, and their communities. By fostering unity, resilience, and holistic care, we’re building brighter futures for all.
Emergency relief is our rapid response to sudden crises, providing vital aid, comfort, and support to communities facing unexpected hardships, ensuring they’re not alone in their most trying times. Be a beacon of hope in times of catastrophe, providing immediate relief and support. Deliver essential medical care and services to the most vulnerable.
Our Feeding Programs tackle hunger head-on, combating hunger and malnutrition by ensuring children and families receive nutritious meals and have consistent access to food resources.
For those who wish to be a part of where the need is greatest at any given time, our “Where Most Needed” fund is an all-encompassing solution, directing your generous contribution to where it’s needed most to create a transformative difference.
