The International Safe Shelter Foundation accepts tax deductible donations.

The ISSF is a 501(c)3 public charity.


  • Donations are urgently needed by the shelters we support. Both monetary and in-kind donations are accepted.

  • In-kind donations most urgently needed at this time include diapers, milk, personal hygiene items, blankets, children's toys, and construction materials.

  • The shelters are also in need of volunteer labor to assist with building repairs.

  • ISSF has very low administrative costs. We do not maintain a physical location nor do we have paid employees, and all work is done by a volunteer board of directors. Because of this, close to 100% of the money donated goes directly to the organizations that we support.



    "With our best wishes and in the name of all abused women whom we assist, many thanks!"

    Centro de Proteccion de Mujer a Mujer in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico and
