Gifts made to Heifer represent a gift to the entire mission. To help the greatest number of families move toward self-reliance, Heifer does not use its limited resources to track individual animals from donation to distribution. We use your gift where it can do the most good by combining it with the gifts of others to help transform entire communities and to raise awareness about the issues of world hunger and poverty through education.
