Is Love Volunteers Non-Profit or 501(c) registered?
Love Volunteers was initially founded in the UK as a non-profit. However the organization has since been moved to New Zealand, the home country of our founders, and unfortunately being a non-profit here does not benefit the vast majority of our volunteers at all.
We continue to offer 'non-profit program fees' which means that the fees listed on our site are set by our local partners who directly manage the projects you will be supporting and the full amount is paid to them to cover the cost of hosting you. When you consider that our program fees are often a fraction of those advertised by so-called 'non-profits' - for essentially identical programs - the '501c' status starts to seem more like an excuse to make
more profit - which we don't agree with.
