Hope partners for good.

We empower like-minded organizations that do good work among the poor and suffering in their communities. This is accomplished by providing such friends with food, water, supplies and much more.

Why Resource Others?

Convoy of Hope’s partners are crucial to our work responding to disasters, holding community outreaches and implementing life changing feeding initiatives throughout the world. Each year corporations donate tens of millions of dollars’ worth of food and supplies to Convoy of Hope, which we in turn distribute throughout channels and also through partner organizations bent on making a difference in their communities.

Our Approach

    Partnerships with companies, organizations and other private donors that donate/provide excess product, services or inventory to assist Convoy of Hope in carrying out our goals of providing help and hope to people worldwide through our Children’s Feeding Initiative, community outreaches, disaster response and partner resourcing.

  • Corporate Partners

    With the support of our corporate partners, every dollar donated to Convoy of Hope is leveraged into more food, water and supplies for those who need it most.

  • Church Partners

    By connecting with churches nationwide and providing them an opportunity to partner with Convoy of Hope, tens of thousands of children are being fed regularly, people are being helped in times of disasters, and struggling families are helped at the organization’s community outreach events. Churches are vital to Convoy of Hope’s financial and volunteer base.

Tornado strikes northern Illinois; Disaster Services team en route

10:39:42 PM

Convoy of Hope’s Disaster Services team will be in Rochelle in the early morning hours ready to start processing local volunteers. They will be taking debris removal supplies and gear to help coordinate volunteer efforts in the areas affected by the storm.

12:17:44 PM

Convoy of Hope’s Disaster Services has a team en route to northern Illinois where a strong tornado destroyed dozens of homes. The team will connect with local contacts to see if Convoy of Hope can be of any help to survivors of the storm. The tornado, with 150 mph winds, hit the tiny town of Fairdale, Ill., wiping some homes off their foundations. Media reports say that 11 people have been hospitalized.

As tornado season nears its peak in the U.S., the Disaster Services team continues to closely monitor storm development and implement response plans when warranted. Updates on the situation in Illinois will be posted here as information from the team becomes available.

The Framework of Compassion: Partnership

“Together everyone achieves more” is a phrase that resounds in elementary schools everywhere. There is a lot of truth to this saying.

At Convoy of Hope, we learned a long time ago that if we want to see change in the world we need great friends with similar values.

For us, partnership happens on two levels. We partner with incredible organizations, so in turn we can partner with the communities we serve.

Without our partners and people like you, we would be limited in our ability to spread hope, but together we can help so many. That’s why partnership is an integral part of our compassion framework.

To celebrate the seventh week of our framework of compassion series, we encourage you to reflect on the partnerships in your life and think about how you can work with others to build a better world.

The Framework of Compassion: Support

It is literally true that you can succeed best and quickest by helping others to succeed—Napoleon Hill

At Convoy of Hope we take Mr. Hill’s words to heart when thinking of our compassion framework, understanding that our success will be measured by how many lives we improve and people we empower.

Just like Sofia, a young girl from El Salvador, who spends much of the her time while her mother is at work with a local couple that operates the area’s Children’s Feeding Initiative.

By compounding a local organizations relationships and know-how with our resources we can come together to do so much more for those that need it most.

As part of our framework of compassion series, we encourage you to think about support and what you can do to help a local organization that is working to empower others.
