Become volunteer

Volunteering offers vital help to people in need and worthwhile causes - but the benefits can be even greater for you, the volunteer. Volunteering and helping others can help you reduce stress, combat depression, keep you mentally stimulated, and provide a sense of purpose.



We don’t live in a perfect world, and there’s never going to be a perfect time to give—but there are always people out there in need of help. Whether interest rates are rising, the economy is in the doldrums, or even if you’re experiencing financial difficulties of your own, the reality is that when you donate your money, you give of yourself as a steward to those in need.


Give scholarship

With scholarships, the community has the opportunity to grow to be more developed in circumstances where development is needed. Of course, people who offer scholarships should be part of this growth but should they not be able to, the growth is continued to their satisfaction for there involvement. Some of the assistance could include volunteerism or monetary.

About Our Foundation

The mission of the ERE Fund is to strengthen the community for current and future generations by providing leadership, fostering collaboration, and creating a legacy of giving to do good. Everyone has a role to play in helping to build our community. Our role is to help you and improve the quality of life for the citizens. It’s our role to connect potential donors – and their charitable interests and resources – with local needs. We do this by managing and investing a variety of funds that individuals, families, and organizations have established with us. From those funds, grants and scholarships are made to address local needs. All of the assets gifted to the Fund remain in the community and will have a direct and lasting impact.

Our mission is to make them feel safe

In particular, people living in communities in which they feel unsafe are more likely to have poor mental health outcomes than those in safer communities. All three factors of powerlessness, mistrust, and isolation directly increased feelings of psychological stress.

What We Do

The ERE Fund works to assist the needs of poverty-stricken people in various communities across the globe. We work to help in the following categories which we have found to be of importance.


Education gives us a knowledge of the world around us and changes it into something better. It develops in us a perspective of looking at life. It helps us build opinions and have points of view on things in life.

Health and Nutrition

Good nutrition is an important part of leading a healthy lifestyle. Combined with physical activity, your diet can help you to reach and maintain a healthy weight, reduce your risk of chronic diseases (like heart disease and cancer), and promote your overall health.


Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) is a chronic, potentially life-threatening condition caused by the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). By damaging your immune system, HIV interferes with your body's ability to fight the organisms that cause disease. HIV is a sexually transmitted infection (STI).

Hunger and Livelihoods

A feeling of discomfort or weakness caused by lack of food, coupled with the desire to eat. These feelings are often overwhelming to those suffering and it is our hope to bring joy to those in these circumstances. We work with shelters to provide the necessary care.

Give help where it's needed most

Causes that can't wait

Schools Not Slavery for Rural Haitian Children

No child should ever be enslaved. Every child has the right to grow-up at home with their family, in a community that is committed to educating and protecting them. Every family has the right to earn a dignified living, so they can provide for themselves. No woman or girl should ever face violence, discrimination, or inequality. Your belief in these fundamental rights and your generous gift to defend these rights is building a Haitian-led movement of women and men, teachers and parents, local elected officials and grassroots activists, and people from all walks of life who are committed to guaranteeing these rights. Thank you for your generosity, your care, your concern, and your commitment to this human rights movement.

Provide drinkable water

The first alarm bell sounded in Africa, where multiple countries are suffering some of the worst drought-related food shortages in more than a decade, driven by one of the strongest El Niño’s on record. International aid groups project that one million children in southern and eastern Africa are suffering severe malnutrition, and 2.5 million people across southern Africa are in crisis stages of food insecurity. While this crisis was driven by weather, it spotlights the kind of human misery that results from drought combined with often poorly managed water resources, such as inefficient irrigation practices and infiltration practices during droughts. It’s also a harbinger of disruptions that climate change will likely bring more of, particularly in parts of Latin America, Africa and Asia where poor populations are especially vulnerable.

Help Rural Villages Rebuild and Recover

Our team has learned many lessons during those this time, one of which includes how difficult it is to work during the monsoon season. It can be dangerous for volunteers on the sites, materials can be hard to source and it is nearly impossible to complete any work. All Hands and Hearts’ teams wrapped up work with the completion of two schools just in time. Although work has stopped, our Program Development team continues to identify schools in need. We thank you for your continued support of our work across the world and invite you to check back soon for updates on the new school build.

What our donors have to say

I very much appreciate all of the time spent and insight received. I enjoyed myself. The best part of without a doubt, the kids – their smiles, laughter, and maturity. I volunteer to help the kids, yet I always leave with a renewed sense of hope and life, which comes from the kids, and what they do. To the other volunteers, Thank You!

Jack Newman

Business Manager
“I benefited from the ERE Fund and its services for others when I took care of an elderly man. I like driving around for him and enjoy human contact. As a person, I have been enriched by volunteering to drive for Home & Community Support Services. It has added structure to my well being by forming new relationships with other less fortunate people than me.

Norman Cavel

Marketing Representative
“I think this type of program is very important everyone to be part of. In many cases, our visits to their homes may be the only outside contact they have from week to week. In many cases, their meals are the highlight of their day. It is a small effort on my part, but it brings great joy and satisfaction.”

Become Volunteer

People choose to volunteer for a variety of reasons. For some, it offers the chance to give something back to the community or make a difference to the people around them. For others, it provides an opportunity to develop new skills or build on existing experience and knowledge.
