Zidisha isn’t just an amazing way to make a difference with microloans — we’re also a nonprofit organization. That means we rely on voluntary contributions and super-generous donations from our lenders and supporters to help cover operating expenses, like web hosting, bank fees, telephone costs, regulatory fees, and the ongoing development of our web platform.

We don’t charge any service fee to lenders. Instead, we ask that those who participate contribute what they can to support our growth. (And we’re incredibly thankful when they do!)

Zidisha is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, and your donation to us is tax deductible in the United States.

Below are several easy ways to donate:

Donate via credit card or PayPal

Zidisha members in all countries may make donations via PayPal or credit card in the Transfer Funds page when logged in.

Donate via check

If you’re the holder of a United States bank account, you can donate by check as well. You may make a check out to Zidisha Inc. and mail it to our address below.

Donate via bank transfer

We can accept wire transfer donations at our Wells Fargo bank account in the United States. Please send us an email at [email protected] to let us know that you would like to send a donation via wire transfer, and we'll provide instructions.

Donate stock

You can make a bigger impact by donating appreciated stock directly, instead of donating proceeds from the sale of stock. Here's how it works:

  • Ask your broker or account representative to make a stock gift to Zidisha using the details below:

    DTC Number: 0062
    Stock brokerage account number: 792 543 05
    Account Name: Zidisha Incorporated
  • Send an email to [email protected] and let us know whether you would like the proceeds from your gift to go into a donation lending account, or to general operating costs.
  • Zidisha will receive the full pre-capital gains tax value of the stock, and if you have held the stock for over a year, the full current market value is tax-deductible in the US. We'll provide a donation receipt letter which you can use for tax reporting.

Thanks so much for your support!
