Share N Care Foundation

By Madhu Shah

Share N Care Foundation was established inBirmingham,Alabama three years ago. Share N Care has established network of volunteers over five countries. Almost all immigrants have a good heart to do some charity work for their homeland for Primary or Secondary schools, Colleges, Hospitals or Nursing Homes etc. They like to help needy people of their home town/native place. Most of the well-known charitable organizations don’t work according to the small donor’s (like $100 donation) wishes. Also their establishment overhead cost is well over 18% to 20%. Share N Care offers that service with smiling face without any overhead cost to small donors.

Mission Statement:

Our mission of this foundation shall be to obtain resources, including funds, money and property to provide help and assistance to people who are in need of health care, educational benefits, or any other personal needs for which they cannot provide for themselves. The foundation shall generally conduct as a benevolent non-profit organization, the benevolences of which are, however, expressly limited to charitable, scientific, literary, health care or educational purposes.

We are a non-profit charitable Alabama based Corporation with zero percent overhead, providing highest possible value to the community of United States of America, India, United Kingdom, Canada and South Africa. All donations to Share N Care are tax deductible underIRSCode 501(C).

Share N Care has developed a special program suitable for an individual donor of $100 to be a “Project Owner” and direct the fund according to his/her choice. Also all 100% of this donation will be used for that project.

Our motto is “Service to Mankind is Service to God”.
