iDE's 2017 Fundraising Campaign

Between now and the end of the year, we’re busy recruiting donors who demand more than a nice story. In fact, we want you to think of your donation as a high-performing investment.

What is the power of 10?

iDE’s approach converts every $1 donation into at least $10 in increased incomes for the rural poor. Sometimes even more. In our last measurement and evaluation cycle, our agriculture program delivered an ROI of 14:1. Our WASH program delivered 18:1.

At iDE, we invite you to give like a donor, but think like an investor.


Here’s how your donation becomes an investment

  • It powers designers to develop solutions that improve people’s lives. 
  • It provides resources to train farmers so they can increase their incomes and feed their families. 
  • It supports market analyses to determine what business models lead to lasting opportunities. 
  • It builds measurement and evaluation tools to track where we’re making impact and where we need to concentrate more.

Over 1 billion people live on less than $2 a day. With the right opportunities, people can increase their incomes and rise out of poverty. 

For 35 years, iDE has used the power of business to connect the rural poor to the things they need. Farmers receive training and access to seeds, equipment, and the marketplace. Families can purchase transformative products, such as toilets, water filters, and hand-washing options. Local, small entrepreneurs build their businesses and strengthen their communities.

We have helped 27 million people increase their incomes and improve their lives. We want to reach 20 million more in a fraction of the time. With your help, we can.

Shop AmazonSmile, Solve Poverty

If you’re doing your holiday shopping on Amazon, consider making your purchases through iDE’s Amazon Smile. Amazon Smile will contribute 0.5% of the purchase to iDE. It’s the same products, same price, and same services. But with iDE’s power of 10, your contribution of 0.5% becomes 5% for the rural families that iDE works with.
