We believe the end of modern day slavery will come from individuals who gather together to push on businesses, media, and governments to support their existing values for human rights. We believe that this is a bottom-up movement that needs dynamic information, sustained inspiration, and most importantly, tactile activation.

When you make a financial contribution to a project, your donation is processed by our authorized payment processing center. It is then conglomerated and directed toward the funding goal. Once the project is funded, we deliver 100% of funds to the partner organization carrying out the work to achieve the goals set by the project. To ensure that the partner has indeed used this money for this work, we require them to return to their Responder Team an impact report explaining what they have accomplished as a result of the funding.
When you donate to a project, your name, billing address, email address and credit card information are sent to our third-party credit card vendor (authorize.net). Neither the Fair Trade Fund or any of our vendors have access to your personal credit card information. Your personal information is not sent to the partner organization leading the project.
Yes, all donation projects posted on the CallandResponse.com website are tax-deductible. Fair Trade Fund (owner of callandresponse.com) and its partner organizations are 501(c)3 organizations making all donations tax-deductible for U.S. taxpayers.
We are grateful to the generosity of those that wish to support Call+Response as we expand our mission. If you would like to make a donation to Call+Response, you may do so online via credit card or personal check.
Submissions are accepted from any interested 501(c)3 organization, and Response Projects are chosen based on a cost-benefit analysis of their potential for impact on the reduction and prevention of slavery and care for its victims. Each project should have a requested monetary amount needed to achieve the goals set therein. Projects are categorized based on the area of human trafficking that they address. They may be placed in the queue for Freeing Slaves or Rehabilitating Victims. While a program may create impact across these categories, the Fair Trade Fund attempts to most appropriately place each project so that donors may choose an area of interest about which they most care.

No. We have deeply discounted the cost of the Call+Response DVD kit for public events (Faith, School, Community screenings) so that you are able to afford the film, spread the word, and invite as many people as possible to the event. You are welcome to help raise money for one of the front-line, non-profit groups we support that are fighting Modern Day Slavery, or for another cause in your community, but we do ask you to avoid charging admission for the film.
