Door-2-Door Fundraising at Amnesty International

You may see Amnesty International fundraisers on the street or coming to your doorstep to talk to you about becoming a monthly donor. Please consider joining us as a monthly donor today. Your support will help continue the fight for human rights!

  1. Why does the Amnesty International do door-to-door fundraising?

    Door to door fundraising is one of the most effective and personal ways we can reach out to donors. Amnesty International believes all people have fundamental human rights, but those rights are abused or denied every single day. With a monthly donation, Amnesty International is able to consistently continue our research and document human rights abuses and mobilize millions of supporters to campaign for change.

  2. How does a donor know if a fundraiser is from Amnesty International?

    In addition to the “Amnesty Yellow” vests, all Amnesty International fundraisers have identification badges and name tags.

  3. Do fundraisers accept cash gifts?

    No, fundraisers do not accept cash or coin gifts, this helps protect both the donor and fundraiser. Amnesty International fundraisers accept void checks for Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) and credit card payments electronically on a tablet or a secured TPV phone call.

  4. Is it safe to give personal and financial information to the fundraisers?

    Yes: All tablets are equipped with encrypted software to collect payment information in a secure way. All the data we collect is immediately uploaded to our remote servers, processed and then completely removed from the tablet. Once processed, your financial data is further encrypted according to Payment Compliance Industry (PCI) Standards.

  5. How does a donor know I am a monthly donor?

    All donors will receive an email confirmation immediately upon sign-up, and if available, a phone call to welcome you within two weeks. Donors can call us at 1-800-AMNESTY if they have no received any of the mentioned above correspondences.

  6. What if a donor wants to cancel or change giving?

    Donors may cancel monthly gifts at any time by calling 1-800-AMNESTY or email at [email protected] They may also reduce or increase the donation amount, change payment method, and/or gift schedule by calling or emailing.

  7. When and how will I receive my tax receipt?

    Donors will receive a consolidated tax-receipt for all your donations in a specific year at the beginning of the following year – usually in February to the address that you have provided.
