Are you using other grantors or private institutions to sponsor the projects?

Yes, in addition to individual donors, Talita Cumi is actively searching for private and federal grantor institutions to sponsor our vision and mission. Among those, we have religious institutions such as churches with the desire to invest preparing future missionaries. Social institutions dedicated to help DV  and women empowerment, youth educational programs and more.


Is this program only for religious individuals?

No, Talita Cumi’s vision and mission is based on a biblical/spiritual call; however, we serve all individuals regardless of their beliefs, race, ethnicity, age or gender. There are, however, some programs that are specific for certain individuals based on the purpose and source of the funding that we use for it. Therefore, each participant in our programs must qualify to receive the sponsorship as we must be in compliance with our grantors.

As a volunteer, do I pay for the trips?

This depends on the trip and the funding we are using to sponsor the trip. If the grantors and donors for the trip convert the expenses of a volunteer, then the answer is yes. If the funding cannot cover that, the volunteer must cover their own expenses as part of their donation. In any case, a volunteer can choose to pay for their own expenses and you will receive a report of volunteer hours and your equivalent dollar amount of contribution to be used for your tax exemption records.


How old should a volunteer be?

Preferably +18 but depending on the project, we can accept younger volunteers, possible in the company of a guardian.


What are the requirements to become a volunteer?

Background check for volunteers in contact with minors is required. Your curriculum vitae and cover letter indicating your motivation and passion to participate in our programs.

Some grantors, require additional information for specific projects in which case, the volunteer will be notified of additional requirements, if needed.


Should I belong to a specific religion to be a volunteer?

Helping others is a humanitarian act that comes from sensitive hearts and cannot be limited by personal beliefs. Everyone who feels like giving a hand and fills the requirements to be part of our programs is more than welcome to become a volunteer with us. So come on: help us help others!
