We know that you have many choices when it comes to where to invest your time and money.  As you choose ImpactLives, know that your investment is appreciated and used with high standards of stewardship and accountability.

Since 2010, ImpactLives has received positive audit and reviews from external organizations.  We take stewardship seriously and carefully apply your gifts to where it is needed, using trusted partners locally and globally. Whenever possible, your investment is used for sustainable development, rather than just temporary relief.

Without your gifts, we are not able to achieve our mission to transform communities one life at a time.  Individuals are not given the opportunity to become the leaders they were intended to be and communities may not receive the help that they need. 

Because ImpactLives does not yet reflect $1,000,000 in revenue and $500,000 of that from public support, you won’t find our organization on Charity Navigator.  However, we believe in transparency and if you have any questions about how your investment may be used, feel free to contact us – we would be happy to talk with you!

Don't forget about alternatives ways to donate to ImpactLives. We are able to accept mutual funds and appreciated stocks - call us at 612.817.0791 for details. There are other ways to give such as: Amazon Smile, Thrivent Choice Dollars, writing "ImpactLives, Inc. EIN 83-0487437" as your donor of choice on your company's United Way pledge card, or asking your employer if they match donations to 501(c)3 organizations such as ImpactLives. 


Give Where Needed Most

Giving to this area ensures that your money will be used where it will have the most impact.   We have a variety of initiatives and programs and needs are always changing; an investment here will be applied to the greatest need at the time.

Support an Event

ImpactLives partners with schools, communities, corporations and boards, faith-based organizations and individuals on service learning events. An investment toward a specific event or project provides direct financial support to help achieve the fundraising goals of that initiative.


Meals of rice, soy, vitamins and vegetables are packed at ImpactLives’ events that pair service learning with works of social justice. It is important for ImpactLives’ investors to understand that we are not a disaster relief organization. Rather, we work hand-in-hand with leaders in communities around the world as part of long-term, sustainable projects.


Many of us take for granted a roof over our head and many rooms in our house – even one to call our own!  If you choose to invest in ImpactLives’ shelter and housing initiatives, you will help to provide a much-needed home or building for a someone who needs one.


In the United States and many places around the world, obtaining clean water is as easy as turning on the water faucet or bending to drink at a water fountain.  But for many people, getting water involves walking 4 to 5 hours a day.  And many times the water that is obtained is not even clean.  Your gift can make clean, potable water available to an entire village.


ImpactLives currently has several partnerships in the area of medical service, including maternity clinics, community-access clinics, education and medical supplies.  Our partnerships reach from SouthEast Asia to Africa to Latin America. Your donation would help support projects such as these.

Land Development

ImpactLives owns nine acres of land near Hato Mayor, Dominican Republic.  This beautiful property is perfectly located to take advantage of local city services and native agriculture, and yet is a setting of tranquility.  The vision for this land is to provide meaningful service for local residents of the Dominican Republic and for others from around the world, but we need investors to begin the planning and development of this property.

ImpactQuest Scholarship

An ImpactQuest experience can be done locally or globally and involves the full combination of leadership development with acts of social justice.  This research-based model is proven to truly create transformation one life at a time.  Your investment in an ImpactQuest scholarship would allow people who would not otherwise have the opportunity, to participate in an ImpactQuest experience.

Education and Leadership Development

An investment in education and leadership development could benefit someone in our local communities or around the world.  As ImpactLives seeks to get to the root cause of societal issues, we believe that, to truly make a sustainable difference, it begins with education.  Your gift can make a significant impact.

Social Innovation

Innovation begins with great ideas, and these ideas sometimes need resources to come to life.  Invest in this unique way to help support those who desire to improve economies, environments, and the lives of people here and around the world. 

Social Entrepreneurship

This fund is a unique way to contribute to “filling a gap” or improving on existing programs and services.  The best of ideas are just that – ideas – until they are implemented and given the chance to benefit others.  With ImpactLives’ careful facilitation, an investment in social entrepreneurship will assist those who are ready to “just do it,” but just need a little help. 

Diversity and Inclusion

To some, the concepts of “diversity” and “inclusion” are the buzz words of today.  But at ImpactLives, these important concepts are the heartbeat of what we teach.  Your investment in this area will allow our diversity and inclusion programs to be available to those who may not otherwise have this opportunity.
