Donate - Be part of our 1%...

Less than 1% of the volunteers we serve make monetary donations to Hands On Orlando.

Yet 99.5% (survey results) say our projects are well managed. And 99.9% of volunteers feel they "made a difference." And 99.5% of volunteers say "they would recommend Hands On Orlando to their family and friends."

Why the imbalance?
It turns out most volunteers think they help us when they volunteer. And we don't appear as financially needy as some other charities.

Actually, no projects help Hands On Orlando.
All help third-party organizations. It takes a lot of money to support people who want to volunteer.

We Do More Good

  • We empower people (volunteers) to become problem solvers while they learn about community issues.
  • Our work helps thousands of children and adults who need help.
  • We save non-profit agencies money (project outcomes) and help them qualify for grant money from other sources.
  • Many volunteers we serve make additional commitments of time and money directly to organizations that receive our support.
  • Non-profit agencies we serve become better known by more caring people.
We leverage money and time like no other charity in Central Florida. We have helped over 300 non-profit organizations, schools and parks, served over 190,000 volunteers and been in operation since 1999.
