Mercy Corps

We’re proud to introduce this month’s Giving Back recipient. Headquartered in Portland, OR, Mercy Corps is a global humanitarian organization empowering people to recover from crisis, build better lives and transform their communities for good.

In more than 40 countries, they partner to put bold solutions into action, helping people triumph over adversity and grow stronger from within. Each year they infuse millions of dollars into local economies through small business loans and grants to provide livelihoods for the world’s most vulnerable people. Mercy’s programs are led by those who speak the local languages, know the culture and understand the unique challenges of each community. More than 93 percent of Mercy’s field staff are from the countries where they work. Their hard work and personal commitment to success helps lift their neighbors from poverty.
