How We Select Our Partners

forPEACE selects partner organizations based on their potential to foster self-reliance and sustainability. All partners have been selected after careful observation by forPEACE to ensure that their programs align with charitable and educational purposes and forPEACE's mission. Time is taken to establish trust-based working relationships with organization leaders and become familiar with their operations prior to making distributions. forPEACE regularly spends time interviewing and observing organization leaders and program participants. Organizations also submit annual reports and budgets for review by forPEACE’s Board of Directors.
 

To Ensure Donations Are Used as Specified

forPEACE board members and volunteers make on-site visits to all recipients of funds on a regular basis to assure distributions and services are utilized for specified purposes. Projects in Cambodia are visited annually. Projects in Israel are visited quarterly, at a minimum.
