There are many ways you can help Roots Ethiopia grow our programs and reach more families and children.


The single biggest way you can help Roots Ethiopia is to lend your financial support. When you donate, your money is immediately put to work. Roots Ethiopia can accept one time donations and recurring donations, as well as gifts of stock.


Fundraise for Roots

Don’t have money to spare? Consider hosting a fundraiser on behalf of Roots Ethiopia. We have an integrated peer-to-peer fundraising platform on Network for Good that allows you to come alongside us at any time and help us raise funds. Ask us how!

Long distance runs, garage sales, progressive dinners, Etsy websites and silent auctions are just some additional ways you can lend your talent without emptying your personal pocketbook.

Fundraisers are especially great because they don’t just raise dollars—they also raise awareness. Please feel free to contact us for fundraising materials. Our “virtual bin” of pdf files are easy to use and will help you help us!

Like Us on Facebook

We’re on Facebook, and liking our page is a great way to get regular updates on Roots Ethiopia. If you’re not seeing all of our updates, don’t forget to subscribe as well. Even better than just liking us is sharing the love and promoting our page to all of your friends.

Follow Us on Twitter or Instagram

As we get our feet wet on Twitter and build our network on Instagram, help us find a following. We know many of you are tapped into online communities of like-minded people who care about giving back, both in our own backyards and abroad. Make some virtual introductions on our behalf.

Volunteer to Write a Blog Entry

If you’re a donor or even just a friend, write about us. Send us your story, and we’ll share it on our website with credit to you. Tell the world what it means to you that there’s an organization working to make lasting change. We provide lots of good information on our social media channels (which you’re welcome to borrow) but if you need more questions answered, reach out. We’d love to help you find the right information to write something stellar that will help Ethiopia.

Volunteer for U.S. Operations

Are you terrific at organizing fundraising events or gallery exhibits? Are you handy with Excel? Are you a Database guru? Do you have grant writing or administrative experience? Roots Ethiopia runs on the energy of a dedicated squadron of volunteers that set up our staff in Addis and Durame for success. Please feel free to contact us using the form below for information about volunteer roles we are looking to fill!
