What type of Organizations does eMite support?
The donation of one’s Mite is a great thing. The use of one’s Mite is a solemn task that eMite takes with utmost effort to ensure the greatest impact and stewardship. With this in mind, we seek out the most effective organizations in their areas of operation.
eMite assigns our donors’ Mites toward humanitarian related relief. Our donors’ Mites go toward relief of hunger, illness, disease, poverty and other ailments affecting humanity.
eMite seeks out organizations that are actively participating in the services they provide. It is our desire to assist these organizations in impacting the people they serve. Finding, researching and funding organizations with outstanding records in philanthropy is what makes eMite such an outstanding resource for the giver. We are jealous about the use of your Mite.
How does eMite engage children in giving?
Children are the most valuable asset our world possesses. They are the future of our societies and they will be responsible for carrying on the giving after we are gone. eMite desires to actively inspire and engage children in the need for giving and the impact a life of giving can accomplish.
We encourage parents and leaders to engage children in participating in giving. By providing a platform that informs the giver of the impact of their Mite, we hope that families will be blessed to encourage all its members in giving. Through eMite parents can show their children how giving touches lives around the world. Once this is accomplished, the seed of giving is planted and the child will do the rest.

eMite uses Stripe for its credit card processing. This service does not save your billing information. Each time you donate your Mite you will need to enter your billing information.

How does eMite get videos of each individual project supported?
eMite is all about letting its donors know how their Mite is used. The project videos are a vital part of our engagement of the giver. We go to great lengths to make sure that every project has its own unique, on site, video produced to show the eMiters how their Mites were used and who they touched by their giving.
The “sauce” behind the video is secret. But suffice it to say that some dedicated, talented people love being on the ground when the projects are completed and to celebrate with those who are thankful for the generosity of the eMiters!
eMite protects our donors and watches over their information diligently. No eMiter information is used for any purpose other than notification of how awesome you are and how your Mite was used. We do NOT sell or give your information to any partner or third party. There - we said it and that’s the way it is.
