There’s a part of every one of us that dreams of a better world. That spark of inspiration to help a person, fix a neighborhood, or even change a nation. At Salvation Foundation, we empower both individuals and charities to turn compassion into action. Because that is how change happens.

Salvation Foundation was launched in 2008 to help combat some of the major challenges currently haunting human existence. 

We specialize in fragile settings.

There is one constant in fragile settings: they don’t follow a pattern.

Today, we will work to deliver life-saving aid to millions of people living on the edge of survival. Tomorrow, when the crisis subsides, we will work alongside community members to restore job opportunities, build critical infrastructure, and develop education programs. And the day after that we will be ready for the next chapter. In fragile settings, every day brings new opportunities and fresh challenges.

Salvation Foundation 7,300 staff and volunteers have the experience and agility to meet the ever-changing needs of populations in vulnerable situations. We partner with them to develop a strategy for the future and create more enduring pathways to stability.

Salvation Foundation is dedicated to reducing human suffering by delivering life-saving aid in the most fragile settings. We are non-political and non-sectarian in our mission. Over the past 13 years, we have worked in more than 50 countries in Africa, Asia, Latin America, the Caribbean, and the Middle East to serve the needs of the most vulnerable, neglected groups – particularly women, children, those affected by natural disasters and civil conflicts, and the poor.

Our mission, vision and values help us to achieve a positive impact in communities and maintain a healthy organizational culture. All those associated with Salvation Foundation – from employees, seconded employees and indirect staff members to interns, volunteers, officers, and members of our Boards of Directors – agree to promote these goals and values. We also agree to uphold Salvation Foundation code
