How to donate

Support Tributaries of Hope

Due to international regulations, we are still working to find a way to integrate donations directly into our website.

Currently, the only viable method to donate is via a Western Union money transfer. We understand the concerns this may raise, so please contact us so we can be as transparent as possible. All funds are received directly by Paul Makete, and we are more than willing to provide documentation of how your donation is used. We are also happy to provide references from past donors.

Please use the contact form below to send a message requesting the information necessary to send a money transfer via Western Union.

Why Do You Use Western Union for Money Transfers?

Unfortunately, platforms such as PayPal and other payment gateways that allow for donations do not allow for the transfer of funds to Uganda (due to various international financial regulations). Western Union is the most cost effective means of transferring funds from parties in the United States to Tributaries of Hope. If you have any concerns about this process, please send us a message and we will do everything we can to answer your questions and concerns.
