Our Vision

GiveLight is a world-recognized crisis relief organization that seeks to build permanent homes and provide long term education for global orphans.

The orphaned children of the world are the stars of GiveLight’s universe. They are the heart and soul of everything we do at GiveLight. They are like the stars that adorn the night sky making it beautiful and inspiring for us to gaze at.

Established in January 2005, after the devastating 2004 Tsunami, GiveLight supported 50 children in Indonesia in its first year. Fast forward ten years later, today GiveLight is supporting more than 800 children in ten countries around the world, including Pakistan, Haiti, Somalia, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Afghanistan, Cambodia and the Bay Area. Future plans include expansion in Morocco and additional new homes in Sri Lanka and Bangladesh.

 

Program

The Gala will be held in Santa Clara with an expected attendance of 1000 generous and accomplished individuals, which include longtime supporters and new ones. 

The program will be as follows:

Keynote Speaker: 
Jeff Hoffman, Co-Founder & Former CEO of Priceline

- Highlights of accomplishments (inluding stories of our children who graduated from College)
- Children Artwork and Entertainment 
- Live Auction
- Future Dreams
