Your support helps us to reach hardworking people around the globe.

Why donate

Three billion people live in or near poverty. They are left out of, or poorly served by, the world’s financial system. Without access to financial tools, like savings, credit, and insurance, their ability to manage their lives, weather shocks, and seize opportunities is limited.

With your support, people around the world will be empowered to improve the lives of family members, employees, and neighbors in critical ways — with better nutrition, regular schooling, or simply a roof that doesn’t leak.

Join us to create a world with economic opportunity for all.

The Sustainers Society is a special group of loyal supporters who demonstrate their commitment to financial empowerment by making monthly gifts to Accion, which provide a consistent foundation of support. You can join the sustainer society with this link:
The Accion Women’s Network highlights and celebrates the impact of the financial assistance that Accion provides to female entrepreneurs in developing countries and in the United States. The network serves as an outlet for stakeholders to discuss topics related to women and financial access. We ask that members contribute an annual gift of $1,000. Guests are welcome to join events.
Members of the Thought Leadership Council have a voice in developing Accion’s annual research agenda and serve as an important sounding board during the analysis process. Participation on the Council provides a meaningful opportunity to support Accion’s most innovative work in a way that’s both rewarding and requires only a modest time commitment. It also ensures that Accion remains a leading advocate for financial inclusion and affords us the resources to challenge the industry, protect clients, and pursue cutting-edge innovations that improve financial well-being at the base of the pyramid. We ask that members contribute an annual gift of $20,000.
Remembering Accion with a bequest from your estate will help sustain and strengthen Accion for years to come. You can make a bequest to Accion by including language in your will or living trust, leaving a portion of your estate to Accion, or designating Accion as a beneficiary of your retirement account or life insurance policy. For more information, please call Leslie Puth at 646.833.4541 or via email at
Accion welcomes tax-deductible contributions in the form of securities. This is a particularly powerful way to support our work by contributing appreciated assets without incurring capital gains taxes. Please contact Erika Eurkus at 617.616.1559, via email at, or have the individual performing that transfer contact her directly.
Accion’s central mission is to find creative ways to help people help themselves, in particular, to help people improve their standard of living, to also do it in a way that gives them and treats them with dignity, and enables them to take more control over their own lives and find ways they can support themselves.
