Support PovertyCure

Become a PovertyCure Supporter to help us in our quest to promote the movement from aid to enterprise.

Help us move people beyond their good intentions. Help us share a vision of the material poor as full of creative capacity, dignity, and potential. Only then will we see true, human flourishing in the poorest corners of the earth.

PovertyCure, being an initiative of the Acton Institute, seeks to connect good intentions with sounds economics. So often the efforts of well-meaning people and organizations to address poverty do more harm than good. Our goal is to equip these same people and organizations with resources that promote satisfying and fruitful work, within the context of a free and virtuous society, as the best, and most sustainable, pathway out of poverty.

Your donations will help us reach additional schools, churches, nonprofits, and other organizations with this message. Through screenings of the PovertyCure Video Series, simple training sessions with organizations, and conferences with influential nonprofit leaders, we hope more and more people will move away from aid and embrace enterprise in their fight against material poverty.  

A Testimony

Our family has experienced God’s love and guidance as expressed in the Old and New Testaments of the Bible.

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”

Jeremiah 29:11


God has plans for your life, too.

To reflect God’s love and to be good stewards of God’s gifts, we have provided funds for the Poverty Cure Initiative. We do this anonymously so the focus will be on God who gives each of us hope and a future through His Son, Jesus Christ.
