How much of my donation goes to the actual project?

All of it! Tifie’s operating expenses are covered by an endowment fund so all of your donations can go directly to the people who need it most.

Why are you not listed on Charity Navigator?

We want to be! We don’t quite meet their criteria for being evaluated yet. In the meantime, we have a profile with them. Check it out here.

You seem to do a lot of projects with solar and batteries. Why is that?

Our founder, Robert Workman, founded both Goal Zero and BareBones in order to meet the basic needs of power, light and shelter around the world. We will continually partner with them to provide products to marginalized people who don’t have access to safe and reliable power and structures.

Are you associated with Tifie Ranch?

Proceeds from Tifie Ranch support Tifie Humanitarian, but we do not coordinate any of their events or bookings.
