You Asked, We Answered


Who are you?

Equal As One is an Arizona-based, 501(c)3 non-profit organization focused on healthcare and education. We are a grassroots organization without governmental or large foundation funding.

What do you do?

We believe that people trapped in poverty need both good health and education to escape it. Our goal is to bring healthcare centers and schools to impoverished areas that have none. We provide a sustainable model that avoids dependence on foreign aid and creates community ownership. 

How did you get your name?

We believe that every human is Equal in worth, and that we are all One human family. We believe in the kinship of humanity; we are all called to take care of each other. 

Where does my money go?

Equal As One has no paid employees and is organized entirely by volunteers. That means your entire donation is used to help our cause. In the last 12 months, 95.9% of all money raised has gone directly to our current healthcare program in Nigeria, and only 4.1% to administration.

How can I give?

You can donate funds by card at www.EqualAsOne.com/donate, either one-time or recurring, and by cash or check by mail. Email us at donate@equalasone.org for a secure address for mailing. 

When you shop on Amazon, use Amazon Smile instead. For every dollar you spend, Amazon donates a percent to us. It doesn't cost you anything! Click here to set it up for free.

You can invest your money in a Fidelity Charitable fund, and donate from the interest that it makes. Email donate@equalasone.org for details. 

Can I volunteer?

Absolutely! Volunteers make up the entire staff here at Equal As One, and we'd love you to be a part of what we are doing. Volunteer to join us on a future trip to Nigeria, to assist us with marketing or fundraising, or to help us with trip preparations (like counting, bagging and labeling medications into individual prescriptions, or helping us gather supplies). A medical background is not at all required to be an Equal As One volunteer. Email us at volunteer@equalasone.org to get started.
