Support afghans for Afghans with Your Tax-Deductible Contribution

In-VEST for Peace Tote Bag is your special gift for a contribution of $55 or more

When you donate $55 or more to support afghans for Afghans, you will receive an In-VEST for Peace Tote Bag as your acknowledgement gift. Your contribution is tax-deductible.

While afghans for Afghans operates through the generosity of many volunteers and in-kind donations of goods and services, financial support is required to cover some operational expenses.

Enjoy carrying your knit and crochet projects in our In-VEST for Peace Tote Bag while showing your support. A souvenir of your involvement.

Original In-Vest for Peace art by Rosemary Hill

The original hand-drawn and painted watercolor was created by Rosemary Hill, who generously donated her art to afghans for Afghans. Rosemary's painting was inspired by our In-VEST for Peace knit and crochet patterns to make for Afghan girls and boys. Lovingly created by Americans and Canadians, these wool vests warm the hearts and torsos of children who need to know that we still care and who await a more secure, peaceful future. Rosemary's playful art communicates a most sincere message. Rosemary is a popular knitwear designer and jewelry maker.

The 100% canvas tote bags are sturdy and well made. The dimensions measure approximately 10" across, 13" high, and 4.5" deep. The art is digitally printed in the San Francisco Bay Area.

How to make your contribution of $55 or more

The Peace and Development Fund is our fiscal sponsor. Your contribution is tax-deductible (less the $10 gift value of the tote bag).

Please make your check of $55 or more payable to "Peace and Development Fund" and mail to:

afghans for Afghans
San Francisco, CA
Note: This address is for financial and "business" mail only. DO NOT send hand-knit or crocheted garments to this post box address.

Although we do not have our own tax-exempt status, the IRS allows our donors to make charitable contributions through our fiscal sponsor, the Peace Development Fund. As such, their name, not ours, will appear on your bank or credit card statement.

Please remember to provide your name, mailing address, and email address (in case we need to contact you). Please remember to provide gift recipient information, if this is a gift donation in honor or memory of someone else.

If you are outside the U.S., please email us to inquire. Tax-deductibilty is for U.S. tax payers only, but we can make arrangements to accept non-deductible support.

Send a contribution (and gift tote) in honor of a friend

On request, we are happy to send a personalized acknowledgement card -- along with the tote bag gift -- for donations of $55 or more in honor of a friend or other designated recipient. A meaningful gift idea for a birthday and other special occasions -- even at the last minute! Please email us with the details of your request, and we will respond promptly.
