Become a WHES Supporter


World Hunger Education Service Associates and contributors, through their financial, moral, and intellectual support of WHES, make possible the activities of WHES, especially Hunger Notes. WHES is a registered nonprofit organization in existence since 1976. Your financial contributions are tax deductible. Associate contributions are $50 or more per year. WHES is also very grateful for smaller contributions.

Contributions may be made either to support the general operation of WHES or to support our Hunger Quiz. Support for the Hunger Quiz means that 100 percent of your contribution is used to support programs that reduce hunger and poverty abroad and in the United States.

Contributions to WHES Contributions help maintain the Hunger Notes website, support interns, and pay basic office expenses. The Hunger Notes website had more than 1,100,000 visitors in 2016 learning about world hunger and poverty. A significant part of your financial support is also used to make contributions to organizations working to reduce world hunger.

Contributions to the Hunger Quiz We have established a hunger quiz to help students and others learn more about hunger. See this at our hunger quiz page. To encourage students to take the hunger quiz, we promise to donate a small amount of money (2 to 10 cents) to an organization working to reduce hunger if they take the quiz. Your donations support this hunger quiz and go 100 percent to organizations working to reduce hunger. (For more information, see the list of organizations to which we have contributed in 2015, 2014, 2013, and 2012.)
