In 2016 All Hands deployed 38,000 volunteers from 116 countries to 900 separate disaster relief projects.
Grant Analysis: An initial $1 million grant (2007) established All Hands’ core endowment. Annual grants of $25,000 to $50,000 have allowed this then-new 501c3 grow to become the premier disaster-relief organization operating around the globe through volunteers. Clearly a success.
- Project Size: $6,000,000 annually
- Grant Amount: $250,000 over five years
