Many have asked how they can give financially to relief efforts in Nepal. Both Montview Boulevard Presbyterian Church and the PC(USA) have options that may be of interest.
Montview has deep roots in Nepal, one of the poorest countries in the world. For years Denver’s Montview community has worked closely with two exemplary, U.S-based nonprofits serving some of the neediest people in Nepal: Nepal Youth Foundation (NYF) and International Development Enterprises (iDE). Both organizations have strong leadership in Nepal, experienced local staff and proven track records for effective management and successful program implementation. To learn more visit them online at NepalYouthFoundation.org and IDEorg.org.
In the days since the quake, NYF and iDE have been providing medical attention, shelter, food, and water to the people most affected by the quake—the people they serve. Both organizations have many boots on the ground and systems in place. They know what to do and how to do it. Their greatest need is funding. If you chose to make a contribution to the efforts in Nepal via Montview, all donations will be split equally between NYF and iDE. Your donation is fully tax-deductible. Donations can be made via the Montview website here or by check payable to Montview Church. For donations made via a check, please write Nepal Earthquake on the memo line and mail your check to Montview Boulevard Presbyterian Church, Nepal Earthquake, 1980 Dahlia Street, Denver, CO 80220.
You also can give through the Presbyterian Church (USA), if you desire. PC(USA)'s Presbyterian Disaster Assistance is supporting the work of partners in Nepal through the earthquake recovery efforts of ACT Alliance. To learn more or to donate in this way visit the PC(USA) website here.
