Gifts of Hope are actual items desperately needed by the communities in which we work. Your donation will be matched to a project that includes the item that you selected. If the need for a particular item is filled, or Plan's fundraising goal for the project has been met, we will apply your donation to a similar project or where needed most. Project costs vary widely from country to country, continent to continent, for the same materials and services. The costs listed usually reflect an average cost. Donations to Plan International USA are tax-deductible to fullest extent allowed by law.
