A Unique Charity
At Friends of Man, every dollar contributed by donors goes directly to aid individuals and families in need of assistance. Friends of Man was founded to provide donors with the opportunity to have 100% of their gift used for charitable purposes. No money whatsoever is taken out for administrative expenses - and there are no salaries. How is this done? All operating expenses of the charity are paid by the volunteers through their donations to the Institute for the New Man. That's why all charitable contributions to Friends of Man are used 100% -- dollar for dollar -- to help those in need.

How Friends of Man Works
Referring Professionals (health care and social workers, clergy, counselors, etc.) submit applications on behalf of people in need of assistance. (Applications are accepted only from referring professionals.) Friends of Man carefully considers all requests, and if the application is approved, Friends of Man pays a vendor for the needed items or services. Friends of Man also has a Children's Assistance Program where any teacher, school nurse, counselor, or principal can submit an application on behalf of a child who may need clothing, eyeglasses, medication, or another item of genuine need.
