"I thank you from my heart for helping me with my sorrow. Because of you, I now lead a normal life."

Your support restores hope and rebuilds lives.

Individual Donation

Help rebuild a life right now with an individual gift. In 2013 82 percent of CVT expenses were dedicated to healing survivors of torture. Financial contributions to CVT are tax-deductible. Check with your tax advisor for more information.

Monthly Giving – The Circle of Hope

Individuals who participate in Circle of Hope pre-authorize monthly contributions to CVT from their credit card. With monthly gifts you help decrease our administrative costs and ensure that more of your donation helps torture survivors directly.

Memorial or Celebratory Donations – A Gift of Hope

Donations to CVT can be made as a meaningful way to celebrate special life occasions like anniversaries, birthdays and holidays, or to memorialize friends or family members. A special Gift of Hope card is sent to the honoree or their family when you make a Gift of Hope.
