Fundraising Partners of Amnesty International USA


Your support will help continue the fight for human rights! You may get a phone call from Amnesty International fundraisers to talk to you about becoming a monthly donor. If you’re going to get involved as a member- please sign up with the phone fundraiser! Not only do we believe in the power of a conversation still having merit in our world today, but this is one of the most cost effective fundraising methods! Please consider signing up with them over the phone so you can join us as a monthly donor today.

  1. Why does Amnesty International do telefundraising?

    Telefundraising 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 your donation, Amnesty International is able to continue our research and document human rights abuses and mobilize millions of supporters to campaign for change.

  2. How do I know the person on the phone represents Amnesty?

    You can request an email to verify the legitimacy of the individual fundraiser.  The email will come from [email protected].

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

    Yes, we use software 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 software. Once processed, your financial data is further encrypted according to Payment Compliance Industry (PCI) Standards.

  4. What are the benefits of donating/converting to a monthly gift using EFT or American Express?

    Account information for AMEX/EFT, unless specifically requested by the cardholder, does not expire or terminate. Therefore, you will be able to continue to give without worry of outdated information. Less administrative costs from Credit Card institutions and more of your donation will go directly to Amnesty International USA to continue the fight for human rights!

  5. I have signed up, but how do I know I am a monthly donor?
