DGH accompanies marginalized communities around the world and works to inspire people to become world citizens. To accomplish its mission DGH needs to raise funds. We need your help. This page contains some ways in which you can donate to DGH. Thank you for your support!
DGH is a 501(c)3 organization. Contributions are tax-deductible. As a result of DGH's volunteer structure, there is little overhead to dilute the impact of contributions in achieving tangible results.

Put Six Degrees to Work on Your Web Site or Blog
You've probably heard of the Six Degrees concept. Any one person is connected to any other person through six or fewer relationships, because it's a small world. SixDegrees.org is about using this idea to accomplish something good.
Use Mission Fish with Your Online Auctions
Contributions to DGH are deductible on your 1040 and on state income tax returns. How much that amounts to depends on your tax rate. For example, if the combined federal and state rate at which your income is taxed is 40 percent then 40 cents of every dollar you give to DGH is money that you would otherwise be paying to federal and state governments as taxes.
The deduction allowed for gifts of an appreciated security (stock) can be much higher because it is usually the fair market value at the time it is donated, not at the time it was purchased. Let's say you paid $5,000 for 100 shares of stock and that stock is now worth $7,500. If you cash it in, you'll have to pay capital gains tax on the $2,500 dollars the stock went up. But, if you give the stock to DGH, you can deduct the full $7,500 from your taxes without paying any capital gains tax.
