How Your Donations Can Save A Life
The RWF World Tree of Hope is created each year as a symbol of global unity to promote peace, love and humanitarianism. The tree is created by Rainbow World Fund as a gift from the LGBT and friends community to the world. It is created by RWF to inspire hope and to encourage people to think about what they would like for the future of the world, and then take action.
Rainbow World Fund’s (RWF) mission is to promote peace, unity and hope by leading the LGBT movement in participating in local and humanitarian relief efforts. Founded in 2000, RWF is the world's first and only all-volunteer, LGBT-based humanitarian aid organization. RWF works to help people affected by natural disasters, hunger, poverty, disease, oppression and war by raising awareness in, and funds from, the LGBT community to support relief efforts around the world. RWF provides a united voice, a large visible presence both in the United States and abroad, and a proven structure to deliver LGBT charitable assistance to the larger world community.
RWF currently supports projects focusing on global HIV/AIDS, water development, landmine eradication, hunger, education, orphans, and disaster relief worldwide. RWF is the first and only LBGT based humanitarian aid organization. RWF also works to raise awareness of the charitable contributions of the LGBT community, and to establish connections with non-LGBT communities. RWF programs increase LGBT visibility, serving as a platform for LGBT compassion and concern. RWF’s philosophy is that we are all “One Human Family” and that we are living in a time that tells us that our survival on this planet depends on us all giving more to each other.
RWF has donated nearly $4.5 million in humanitarian aid such as financial grants, food, water, medicine, medical equipment, and art and school supplies.
