Donate to SHIC operations

SHIC supporters will enjoy witnessing the numerous multiplier effects that their donations can have. A donation to SHIC has a unique multiplier effect—every student we inspire to make the world a better place has the potential to have a major impact on the world. In this way, even a small donation can go a long way. Your support powers SHIC HQ, which supports a small army of volunteers working hard to equip students with the inspiration and know-how to make a substantial positive impact. An investment in SHIC may be very high return because each student inspired to make the world a better place could have a huge impact.



If you’d like to make a donation of $200 or more, or would like to make your donation tax deductible (US or UK only), please email Tee at so he can provide you with donation options that could cut back significantly on third-party fees.

For more information on the impact of your donation, have a look at the 2016 Annual Report.
