The Hotes Foundation
The Hotes Foundation™ is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization that does not accept donations.
Our focus is simple: more volunteers with us, serving the poorest of the poor.
Change “giving” to “going.”™
Over the past 12 years, the Hotes Foundation has performed over 70 missions in more than 10 countries, including: Pakistan, Peru, Mexico, Bangladesh, Philippines, Taiwan, Haiti, Kenya, Somalia and Ethiopia.
Every mission is funded entirely by the Hotes Foundation through the founder’s (Richard W. Hotes) personal contributions.
The poor will remain poor unless YOU personally go and deliver relief to them.
For more information on volunteering for mission trips, please contact us.
