About Us

Generosity is Valued Everywhere (GIVE) began as a legacy project, in memory of Juan Hernandez. After his passing in 2011, his good works became known. Over a course of a couple of decades, he assisted his neighbors in San Sebastian Salitrillo, El Salvador, providing meals to those in need. Although he never let it be known, the impact he made continues to resound today. Jesus said, “But when you give to the needy, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, so that your giving may be in secret...” (Matthew 6: 3-4) and that is just what he did. We look to continue his works of generosity and expand the works.

 

We are a Christian-based non-profit that believes Jesus has shown us how to live our faith. We understand that we are not saved by our works but by His grace, but we are called to do good works and blessed those in need.

 

For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.

Ephesians 2:8-10

Core Beliefs

WE GIVE TO BLESS

Because We Are Called To Love One Another

We give to bless a community in need by showing love and compassion to one another. Looking to educate, feed, clothe, and provide opportunities. 

For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me...

Matthew 25:35-36

WE GIVE OUR TIME

Because Love Is Action

We give of our time to show the community we serve our love through action. The action of being present when they need us, to support and work towards a better tomorrow.

...let us not love in word or talk but in deed and in truth.

1 John 3:18

WE GIVE FROM THE HEART

Because We Love

We give from the heart because from it stems the right attitude and motivation. Not expecting anything in return and rejoicing in how we are edifying those we serve.

Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.

2 Corinthians 9:7

WE GIVE AS WE ARE GIVEN

Because of Jesus

We are given grace, mercy, hope, peace, and love. We delight in the opportunity to serve those in need.

For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.
